Accept/Tuition Deposit Payment Methods

IMPORTANT: All deposits will be posted with the date of online receipt or mailing postmark. Students submitting the acceptance deposit after the deadline noted in their offer of admission letter may have their deposit returned, once enrollment capacity has been reached.

Once your deposit is received, please allow 1-2 business days for processing. Your other required enrollment steps (i.e. housing contract) will not be available until your payment has been processed.

  • Credit Card: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Credit card payments are processed by Nelnet Business Solutions a secure 3rd-party vendor contracted by RIT.
    Pay by credit card
  • eCheck: An eCheck (or electronic check) is an electronic version of a paper check used to make free and secure payments online. Anyone with a US checking account can pay by eCheck. You will need to provide you bank name, routing and account numbers. This information is printed on your paper checks.
    Pay by eCheck
  • Mail Payment: Send a check or money order in U.S. funds made payable to Rochester Institute of Technology. Include your name and University ID number on the check or money order. Send the deposit to RIT Office of Admissions, 60 Lomb Memorial Drive, Rochester, New York 14623.
  • International Funds Wire Transfer (from non-US banks): RIT offers Flywire (formally peerTransfer) to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students. With Flywire, you are offered reduced foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save compared to traditional banks.  Excess funds from wire transfers will be returned to the original wire account or left on the student account to be applied to future charges.
