Why Choose RIT?

Follow Your Dreams

Each year, more than 10,000 undergraduate students, including 1,100 students with hearing loss come to RIT from across the country and around the world to pursue their dreams in more than 200 programs of study in today’s most sought-after career fields.

Benefit from Real Support

At RIT, we go the distance to ensure access to programs, services and activities. RIT provides the most accessible educational community in the world for students with hearing loss. Faculty tutors, advisors, notetakers and real-time captionists are available here to help you succeed. On-site audiologists provide services related to hearing and hearing aids, cochlear implants and assistive devices, and speech-language pathologists offer a broad range of speech and language services. You never have to leave campus to take advantage of these services. In addition, RIT’s Office of Veterans Services understands the unique experiences of veterans returning to a college campus, and can help you find all the resources you may be looking for as a valued veteran of our Armed Services.

Enjoy Real Success

RIT students enjoy real success both in college and after graduation. Through your military service you’ve no doubt experienced the most intense form of on-the-job training anywhere in the world, and you’d like to continue learning and growing. We have one of the largest cooperative education programs in the world, which means you’ll benefit from real work experience in your field before you graduate – experience that will enhance your career success. And our employment specialists travel coast to coast meeting with employers, building relationships and educating the marketplace about the value of hiring RIT students and graduates with hearing loss.

Get a world-class private university education at a public college price

As a veteran with hearing loss, RIT can offer you a substantially reduced tuition rate. Because RIT receives special federal support for students with hearing loss, along with your GI Bill, VA benefits and other programs, you’ll pay far less than RIT’s regular tuition rate. A variety of financial aid options also are available.

You’ve done so much for your country and for the world. Now you deserve a college experience designed especially for you – one that provides you with a superior education and leads to a successful career. Follow your dreams to RIT.
