FAQ

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!

I want to try out for an RIT sports team. What do I do?

We welcome you to try out! Be aware that you can join a sports team for fun (Intramurals) or for competition (Division I or Division III). We do not have separate deaf and hearing teams. The only exception is DBA/Deaf Basketball Association. If you do want to try out for a competitive sport, please go to the RIT Athletics website, find the coach and email that person to indicate your interest in trying out. You will need to explain your previous experiences, awards, records, etc. NTID does have a liasion who assists in answering questions, offers support, etc. Feel free to also contact Skip Flanagan (spfnop@rit.edu) to talk more. Be aware that tryouts or practices/games may conflict with Orientation activities. You will be responsible to keep the coach and the SVP Coordinator informed if there are conflicts. We will work together to ensure that you are covering your responsibilities for both things.

What about library facilities?

RIT's Wallace Library is a multimedia center offering a vast array of resource materials. The library provides access to 250 electronic databases, more than 36,000 electronic journals and 75,000 e-books. Resource materials include more than 12,000 audio, film and video titles and more than 500,000 books and print journals.

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. You will have an opportunity to view our residence halls and take a guided campus tour with a current student. After your visit, we will waive your $65 application fee.
