FAQ

What is sampling?

Students are required to sample two majors. They will select these majors on the following website: www.ntid.rit.edu/fye/careers. Please be sure to fill out the Career Interest Survey (Career Survey) because the results from that will determine which majors to sample during SVP. Sampling will either determine or confirm your interest and abilities for different majors. You’ve dreamed of being an engineer, but after you sampled it, you found it really wasn’t for you, for a variety of reasons. By sampling, you’ll already have a bit more knowledge of other majors, allowing you to make an informed decision.

Can I take the SAT instead of the ACT?

Yes, either test is acceptable. We recommend that students who are deaf or hard of hearing take the ACT because research has shown that deaf students perform better on this test than the SAT. To learn more about the tests and the dates they are being offered, visit ACT or SAT on the Web.

What if Barnes & Noble does not have my VR authorization?

If the bookstore does not have your VR authorization, send your new class schedule and booklist with costs to your VR counselor (you can find your booklist at rit.bncollege.com-click textbooks). Email your VR counselor to ask why you don't have book authorization. Purchase your books and pay for them yourself. Keep the original reciept so you can get a refund later (if your VR covers books).
