Undergraduate International Students
Scholarships for undergraduate international students are determined by the Undergraduate Admissions Office and are based on academic merit. In order to renew your scholarship, you need to enroll for a minimum of 12 credit hours and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
In addition to merit scholarships, international students are also eligible to earn additional funds by participating in RIT's student employment program. International students can earn an average of $1,500 per year by working part-time on campus. Students work an average of 8 to 10 hours per week, and positions can be applied for through the Student Employment Office.
International students can also apply for a private bank loan through a lender of their choice. Many lending institutions will require that an international student apply for a loan with an eligible co-signer who is either a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen. Additional private loan and scholarship information can be obtained through the International Education Financial Aid site.
