You will need a passport to go abroad. You should start the process of applying or renewing your passport at least 3 months before you depart. Our office hosts two Passport Drives annually on campus in the Fall and Spring semesters. During this event the Monroe County Clerk is on campus to take passport photos, process passport applications and renew passports. See the links below to find out what forms of ID are required and the associated costs. The paper applications will be available at the fair. Like our Facebook page to stay up to date on our events or email us to find out when the next Passport Drive is scheduled.
Visa requirements for US Citizens differ greatly by country. Make sure you are aware of any visas you might need. If you are traveling to RIT Global Campuses your Study Abroad Advisor will direct you to the RIT staff member that will assist you in the visa application process. If you are going through an affiliate program, contact them to verify whether or not you need a visa.
