Admission to RIT is competitive, but our admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations, and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from a variety of geographical, social, cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.

Our students are excited about their education, engaged in campus life, and driven to develop their professional potential.

Admission to RIT is competitive, but there is no single type of student that defines us. Each year, students apply from diverse backgrounds and with a broad range of professional and personal interests.
