Enrolled students represent all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries.

If I paid for my books myself, how do I get a refund?

After you get your book authorization from VR, go to Barnes & Noble with your original receipt. Barnes & Noble will give you a refund.

Caution: If you lose your receipt, you will not get paid back!

Can I begin the ASLIE program at RIT/NTID any time during the academic year?

The American Sign Language-English Interpretation program follows a sequential course plan, including ASL I-VII and core interpreting courses. Because this course sequence begins in the fall semester, you are not permitted to begin the program during the spring or summer semesters.
