FAQ

Can I have a car on campus? What transportation is available on campus?

All students including freshmen are allowed to bring a car to campus. Public Safety requires all cars to be registered and have a permit affixed to them. There is enough space for all students to park on campus. You will need to register your car with Public Safety or you can go to the Public Safety office and fill out the form.

You don't need a car here at college because it's easy to get around campus and the Rochester area. Free shuttles travel campus daily to help students get from one end of the campus to another. There are also free shuttles that go from campus to area malls and stores on the weekends. There are two public transit buses that come to campus that students can use for a fee.

Will my health insurance be covered in New York State?
Generally speaking, your current health insurance MIGHT cover you during emergencies only.  If you need to see a doctor for a check-up or to get prescription medicine, your insurance plan may NOT cover you.  You must review your plan to see if you are covered in New York State.  If you are not and you seek medical help, you may be charged the full price for any medical services and that can be quite expensive!  Hospital visits, urgent care medical assistance can be VERY expensive!
Please go to the RIT Student Health Center's website for insurance information.  Medicare and/or Medicaid may not be accepted in New York so you need to check and see if it will be accepted in New York/Monroe County/Rochester, N.Y.
Also, prescription medicine information can also be found at the Student Health Center's website too.
How much is tuition?

RIT is truly an affordable choice. Because RIT receives special federal support for deaf and hard-of-hearing students, you can get a top-quality education at a substantially reduced rate. Because RIT receives special federal support, students who are deaf or hard of hearing pay less than one-half of RIT’s regular tuition rate. Hearing students studying ASL-English Interpretation or the MSSE program also receive this reduced tuition rate.
