FAQ

How do I buy my books if VR is paying for them?

Go to the Barnes & Noble college bookstore at RIT. Go to any register. Ask if they have your VR book authorization. If yes, go buy your books.

Do graduates get jobs?

Our graduates are in demand. Last year, 94% of deaf and hard-of-hearing graduates who have sought jobs after graduation have found one within a year. RIT/NTID's employment specialists travel coast to coast connecting with employers to create a climate for successful job placement. They network with employers to build relationships and educate them about the value of hiring deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals.

What is the difference between SVP and NSP?

SVP is the College of NTID Orientation program.  NSP is the New Signer's Program - designed to help students who do not know any sign language.  It is an educational/immersion experience to give our "oral" students a jump start in picking up ASL.  This program occurs BEFORE the SVP Orientation program.

Fall Open Houses

RIT/NTID invites deaf and hard-of-hearing students to spend a day at RIT. This event also is open to hearing students interested in ASL-English Interpretation. Open House is an exciting experience: an opportunity to meet representatives from admissions, financial aid and faculty from academic departments.
