Most applications for admission to RIT are reviewed under our Regular Decision Plan.
All transfer, international, and freshman applicants other than those choosing to apply as Early Decision candidates are reviewed as Regular Decision candidates.
Under this plan, freshman applicants for fall semester (August) entry who have provided all required application materials by January 15 will have their admission notification mailed by mid-March. Freshmen who apply for fall semester admission after January 15 are notified of admission decisions on a space-available basis four to six weeks after their application is complete. Candidates who submit their applications and academic records by January 15 will be considered for RIT’s merit-based scholarship programs (academic and extracurricular) and the RIT Honors program.
