FAQ

What is the difference between a degree in interpreting and certification?

A bachelor’s degree in interpreting teaches the skills, ethics and professional behaviors required to become a professional interpreter. Professional certification is an examination that tests the skills, ethics and professional behaviors of a working interpreter. The National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf is the professional organization for sign language interpreters that offers the certification exam. You can visit their website at www.rid.org.

Which immunizations are required?

REQUIRED vaccines are TWO doses of MMR vaccine given after first birthday, ONE dose of meningitis ACWY (Menactra) vaccine if under age 22 and a booster of this shot needed after age 16.  If over the age of 21, a signature is required on on-line Immunization Record.

DON'T WAIT! If you don’t have the documents, contact your doctor today. Please go to the Student Health Center website for more details and to fill out the FOUR electronic health forms.  Once you fill out the Immunization Record on-line, you will recieve a Physician Verification form in your RIT email account.  This form can be taken to your physician for his/her signature and RETURNED to the Student Health Center to be approved.  

What does Move-in Day look like?

When you arrive, we will have signage directing you to park in "L" lot. 

You will need to go to the Student Development Center ("SDC").  Parents/families will wait in one line to obtain their Parent folder with the schedule and other information in it.  Students will wait in another line before going into the large room (we call it SDC 1300/1310).  Students will NOT be given any keys until the following items are done - also known as our "checklist":

  • Vocational Rehabilitation form to be signed by student with VR info, address, email, phone number and any information about your IPE (Individual Plan of Employment)
  • Media Release form to be signed by student for your local hometown newspaper
  • Pick up your binder with your assigned group number, initial schedule and orientation information as well as Career Seminar curriculum.  You will bring this with you to ALL your events/meetings/classes/placement tests.  You are not to leave it in your dorm room.
  • Email check - be sure you know your RIT DCE username (abc1234) and password - this is REQUIRED in order to be able to log into eServices, placement testing, etc.
  • Confirm your Career Sampling choices - once you sign off, you will NOT be able to change it.  If you haven't filled it out yet, please go to https://apps.ntid.rit.edu/fye/careers/ to fill out the Career Interest Survey - it will save you time in line!
  • Confirm your communication preference - we get our information from what you filled out online on the LCBQ form (https://apps.ntid.rit.edu/fye/lcbq/).  You can also ask about taking sign language classes Fall semester if you'd like
  • If you are a transfer student from another college, you will double-check to make sure NTID Admissions has your most up-to-date transcript.  Whatever we have is what we use to determine transfer credits
  • If you need special testing accommodations as approved by RIT's Disability Services Office, you will want to stop here to confirm and we can explain what you need to do to get your accommodations
  • You can pick up your mail box/post office key
  • You can pick up your housing key
  • THEN - you can go back to your car, unload it to wherever you will be living and move in your things until the next thing on your schedule!
