Admissions & Financial Aid

Overview

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 Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships assists students and their families in identifying sources of financial aid to help meet the cost of a quality education, such as grants, need-based and merit scholarships, and federal student loans. We realize that you are taking an important step in your life-one that is exciting, yet challenging. Since you have many other things to consider as you prepare for college, we want to help make your financial aid experience as smooth as possible.
