Preferred Enrollment Deposit Method

The easiest and best way to pay your $300 tuition deposit is by logging into your portal account (your myRIT account) - look for the link to Pay Your Deposit. Paying your deposit in this manner with a credit card or eCheck makes your payment “authenticated” and will result in faster processing and acknowledgement of your payment.

IMPORTANT: Students submitting the acceptance deposit after the deadline noted in their offer of admission letter may have their deposit returned, once enrollment capacity has been reached.

Other Ways to Pay Your Enrollment Deposit

If someone is paying your deposit for you, or if you do not want to pay by logging into your portal account, you can use the following alternative payment methods which occur outside of our admission system. Be aware that using the following alternatives will result in slower processing and payment acknowledgement:

  1. Credit Card: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Credit card payments are processed by Nelnet Business Solutions a secure 3rd-party vendor contracted by RIT. Pay by credit card
  2. eCheck: An eCheck (or electronic check) is an electronic version of a paper check used to make free and secure payments online. Anyone with a US checking account can pay by eCheck. You will need to provide you bank name, routing and account numbers. This information is printed on your paper checks. Pay by eCheck
  3. Wire Transfer: Please visit to begin the payment process. RIT has partnered with Flywire for all international wire payments.
  4. Mail Payment: Send a check or money order in U.S. funds made payable to Rochester Institute of Technology. Include your name on the check or money order. Send the deposit to RIT Office of Admissions, 60 Lomb Memorial Drive, Rochester, New York 14623.
