Admissions interviews are not required to apply to RIT, but may find the experience to be a helpful addition to the application process.
Through out the year individual appointments are granted on the RIT campus. These informal interviews are typically a general exchange of information between an Admissions Counselor and a prospective student. In most cases, family members are welcome to join in these meetings to learn more about the admissions process and RIT in general.
Each fall, RIT Admissions Counselors and alumni volunteers work together in cities throughout the US to organize a series of Hometown Interviews. These interviews are often more stuctured than those that take place on campus. I have found the feedback that is provided from these interviews in particular to be very helpful in forming admissions decisions for the Institute.
You can find out more about registering for a hometown interview in the Events Near You section of our website... or convieniently here on my blog!
Hometown Interview Registration
RIT is happy to offer informational 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. Students are encouraged to bring a transcript, test scores and/or resume to the interview. A personal interview is not required to be considered for admission to the university.
