Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in Empower.  Enrollment for Empower is currently closed.  It will reopen for the 2016 Fall semester on April 25, 2016 for returning Empower students and May 16, 2016 for all students.  

The ASC offers a number of services that can support students’ academic success.  A service that is similar to Empower is Academic Coaching.  This is an excellent entry point to Academic Support Center Services.  This service, like Empower, offers individualized support to students.  As an added benefit, it’s FREE!!  As you consider your options for academic support, we would encourage you to first request an academic coaching appointment through the online request form.  If after meeting for academic coaching, you still think Empower better suits your needs, please contact Daniele Brown at empower@rit.edu .
