This year, RIT will enroll more than 1,100 new transfer students, placing our university among the national leaders in transfer student admission. About 75 percent of our total transfer population comes from two-year schools, and the remaining 25 percent transfer to RIT after beginning studies at another four-year school.
Students come to RIT to prepare for the future, and academics are the cornerstone of that experience. Few universities provide RIT's variety of career-oriented studies.
We are dedicated to providing you with academic programs that not only offer you a solid education, but superior career preparation.

RIT awards over $5 million in merit-based and need-based scholarships to new and continuing transfer students each year. Since financial aid is based on the difference between college costs and family resources, most students will qualify for larger awards at a private institution than at a public one. Larger awards are required to help students meet the higher tuition costs charged by private colleges.
