"The Writing Center staff was really helpful and I have been back many times since"
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.
Check out our Academic Success Workshop Series offered each academic term on such topics as time management, lecture note taking, text reading/marking, and test preparation. All ASC workshops are free and open to RIT students. Faculty and staff are welcome to attend to learn more about supporting our students. Our 50 minute workshops are offered on several weekdays and evenings throughout the semester. Please refer to the schedule to note the locations across campus. Participants needing interpreting should submit requests through NTID Access Services. Please be sure to allow enough advance notice for Access Services to accommodate your request.
