Standardized Tests

SAT/ACT Scores
Freshman applicants must submit test results from the SAT or ACT.  RIT invites students to provide self-reported standardized test scores (ACT, SAT, TOEFL).  Students may self-report their scores in the following ways:

    • On their application for admission
    • Via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    • From your school/college counselor via mail or email

Admitted students will be required to submit their official scores once they choose to enroll at RIT. 

RIT will accept results from any test date, and ACT or SAT examinations are equally acceptable for admission consideration. (Please note that if you are age 25 or older the SAT/ACT requirement is waived.) SAT / ACT Admission Guidelines PDF (mid 50% range)

International Baccalaureate (IB)
RIT recognizes IB level work. Credit may be awarded for higher level examinations completed with a score of 5 or higher. Credit is awarded on a course-by-course basis and in the context of the student’s intended program at RIT. Each department will determine the specific amount of credit to be awarded. Students are requested to forward IB transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
