RIT Alumni Interview Form

RIT is happy to offer interviews for prospective students who are seniors in high school and prospective transfer students in select cities across the country. Interviews are scheduled to last 30 minutes and are hosted by Admission Officers or Alumni Volunteers. Students should come to the interview prepared to speak about themselves and their interests and have questions about RIT. Dress for the interview is informal. Please note, a personal interview is not required to be considered for admission to the university. Hometown interviews are offered only in the fall and interview registration will open in early September for the students. If you are interested in interviewing a prospective student please contact Sheila Chabot at sdsadm@rit.edu.
