Congratulations and Welcome to RIT, Accepted Graduate Students!

Become part of RIT’s Graduate Student Community. Imagine the possibilities.


Tuition Deposit / Enrollment Confirmation
Full-time students: A Tuition deposit is required to reserve your seat in the incoming class. The deadline for new fall 2017 students is two weeks after the date of your admission. You may pay your $300 tuition deposit online at any time.

Part-time students: Confirm your intent to enroll by emailing gradinfo@rit.edu. The tuition deposit is waived for part-time students.

PhD students: Confirm your acceptance of our offer to the Office of Graduate Enrollment Services, to the Dean of Graduate Studies and your academic department. The deadline for confirming your acceptance of our offer is stated in your acceptance letter. Please see your acceptance letter for additional details and any additional required steps to confirm your enrollment.

Payment of the tuition deposit and/or intent to enroll triggers creation of an RIT student email account, allows new students to apply for on-campus housing, and provides access to a number of RIT resources.
