First-year students attend the RIT/NTID New Signers Program, an optional two-week pre-orientation program offered to newly accepted deaf and hard-of-hearing students who have little or no prior skills in American Sign Language. This program is designed to help students learn basic sign skills, so they can communicate more effectively with RIT/NTID students, faculty and staff members who use sign language. Students also receive an introduction to Deaf culture and deaf awareness.
