FAQ

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!
Will my academic counselor be available?

You will have two different counselors – one for SVP (Career Seminar Instructor/CSI's) and one for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters). Your CSI will have time to chat with you about any questions or concerns you may have during your Career Seminar class time. Your academic counselor won’t be assigned until you are accepted into a major at the end of SVP. Each counselor/academic advisor supports a specific major.

What is an "official audiogram?"

The audiogram should include the date it was performed, the signature of the audiologist who performed the test, and all other information as stated on the Audiogram Form. Audiograms should have been done within the past three years. The form may be copied and sent electronically, mailed in, or faxed to us at 585-475-2696.

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.
