The Academic Support Center provides services for all RIT and RIT/NTID supported Baccalaureate and Graduate degree-seeking students. Any NTID students enrolled in an associate’s degree program such as NTID’s AAS, AOS or AA program should first seek academic support from NTID’s Counseling and Academic Advising Services office.
If you are an upper-class student (second year or beyond), consider becoming part of the Discovery/Pathways Peer Mentor program. Share your experience about the ups and downs of being a first-year student. Below are some common questions about the program and how to become involved.
A peer mentor is an upper-class student who works with an instructor to provide support for first-year students through the Discovery/Pathways classes.
It's up to you and your instructor to decide together. Some peer mentors make announcements about upcoming events, advise students about that week's topic, and/or give feedback to the instructor about lessons. Some students facilitate parts of the class themselves.
At a minimum, peer mentors will come to the Discovery/Pathways class each week, and usually they will meet with the instructor they are working with. On average, it will take 1-2 hours per week.
Although we can't make any guarantees, we do take your preferences VERY seriously.
