College & Careers

The Undergraduate Admissions Office is pleased to announce our 23rd Annual RIT College & Careers program being offered on July 19-20 and August 2-3.

College & Careers is an exciting opportunity which gives high school students who will be entering their senior year this fall, the chance to explore career options by participating in academic demonstrations and hands-on workshops. Working with our renowned faculty and current students, participants will discover and utilize the state-of-the-art facilities and technology available here at RIT. This year over 70 academic sessions will be offered. Students are also invited to experience life as a college student by staying overnight in our residence halls, eating in the dining facilities and participating in a variety of social activities. The cost of attendance for College & Careers, which includes meals and all activities, is $145 per student for overnight accommodations or $135 per student for those not staying in the residence halls.

Parents are also welcome! While all parent activities are optional, College & Careers parent programming includes a Friday evening social event, college based information sessions, campus tours, a student panel, and presentations on admissions, financial aid and career trends. Families will have the opportunity to learn more about RIT during this weekend event; however the presentations are designed to provide an introduction to the college and career search process.

If you know of any rising high school seniors who would be interested in attending College & Careers, please direct them to the website, where they can learn more about the program and register online at: http://www.admissions.rit.edu/careers/.
