Preferred Enrollment Deposit Method
The easiest and best way to pay your tuition deposit is by logging into your portal account (your myRIT account) - look for the link to Pay Your Deposit. Paying your deposit in this manner with a credit card or eCheck makes your payment “authenticated” and will result in faster processing and acknowledgement of your payment.
IMPORTANT: Students submitting the acceptance deposit after the deadline noted in their offer of admission letter may have their deposit returned, once enrollment capacity has been reached.
Other Ways to Pay Your Enrollment Deposit
If someone is paying your deposit for you, or if you do not want to pay by logging into your portal account, you can use the following alternative payment methods which occur outside of our admission system. Be aware that using the following alternatives will result in slower processing and payment acknowledgement:
- Credit Card: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Credit card payments are processed by Nelnet Business Solutions a secure 3rd-party vendor contracted by RIT. Pay by credit card
- eCheck: An eCheck (or electronic check) is an electronic version of a paper check used to make free and secure payments online. Anyone with a US checking account can pay by eCheck. You will need to provide your bank name, routing and account numbers. This information is printed on your paper checks. Pay by eCheck
- Wire Transfer:
International Funds Wire Transfer from non-US banks
