In 2012-2013, RIT provided over $16.6 million in merit scholarships and graduate tuition remission to approximately 2,100 graduate students.
The Office of Graduate Education is here to help faculty and graduate students succeed in their programs of study, research and creative endeavors. We also look forward to helping graduate students develop novel partnerships among ourselves as well as with the community and the private sector. Throughout the year, our office sponsors workshops on career preparation, teaching and grant writing for both students and faculty.
All graduating students are invited to the Annual Class Toast!
Join fellow classmates at your first RIT alumni event. Raise a glass in celebration of your accomplishments as you join the more than 121,000 alumni around the world.
Enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a toast with President Bill Destler, Executive Director of Alumni Relations, Jon Rodibaugh MBA ’12, and Student Government President, Andrea Shaver ’17.
Remember to bring your RIT ID as well as a government issued ID* verifying your age. Only attendees with proper identification showing they are over 21 will be served champagne.
Graduating students will receive a commemorative champagne flute at the conclusion of the toast (while supplies last).
Doors will open at 4:00 PM and remarks will begin at 5:00 PM.
* RIT IDs can be obtained at the Registrar’s Office, found on the first floor of the Eastman Building. Accepted government issued IDs include State Issued License or Passport.
Please consider making a gift in addition to your registration. Register: 2017 CLASS TOAST
