What We Look For

There really is no typical RIT student in terms of background, beliefs, or interests. RIT has a very diverse student body. However, that is not to say that RIT is for everybody.
The most successful RIT students have a positive attitude toward learning, the desire to get involved in campus life, and a significant interest in developing professional potential. All students should have followed a strong college preparatory program in their post secondary education.

Factors considered in our admission decisions include, but are not limited to, past high school/ college performance (particularly in required academic subjects), admission test scores, competitiveness of high school or previous college, and academic major selected.
