International Applicants

You should apply as an international student if you need a visa in order to study or live in the United States. If you are a US citizen, dual US citizen, or permanent resident of the US, you are not considered an international applicant.

Majors at RIT

As a major technological university, RIT offers academic opportunities that extend far beyond science, engineering, and technology. We offer innovative programs in many emerging career fields that are designed to prepare you not only for today’s competitive workplace, but for the challenges you’ll face tomorrow as industries evolve and change.

General Information

  • Differential Admissions

    Students applying to RIT choose a specific academic program as part of the admission process. This is important because we offer a variety of academic programs, and  requirements differ from one program to another.
  • Undecided Students

    It's natural to be uncertain of your future. Like many prospective college students, you may have several different personal interests and career aspirations right now.
  • Applying To More Than One Major

    We also encourage applicants to indicate a second and third program choice when applying for admission. If RIT is unable to offer you admission to your first choice program, you may be qualified for admission to one of your alternative choices.
