While the primary responsibility for your education rests with you and your family, we will assist you in identifying additional financial aid resources. Currently, more than 13,000 RIT undergraduate and graduate students receive over $291 million dollars in financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional resources, in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment. We expect to continue this commitment by assisting the same number of students for the upcoming academic year.
