Connect with Financial Aid


Have you completed RIT's Financial Aid Application?

2024-2025 FAFSA Update
Although families can now submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), colleges/universities will not receive your FAFSA data from the U.S. Department of Education until mid-March, which will delay financial aid offers until mid-April, at the earliest. This is much later than anticipated. In our commitment to supporting families, RIT is taking a proactive approach by offering the RIT Financial Aid Application to ensure accepted students have a financial aid estimate by mid-March.

Items to Complete
First-year students who applied Regular Decision and transfer applicants, who are also U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens seeking need-based aid (i.e. loans, grants) are required to:

  1. File the FAFSA as soon as possible, no later than March 1.
  2. Complete RIT's Financial Aid Application as soon as possible, no later than March 15.

Learn more about RIT's Financial Aid Application

Note: Early Decision applicants should have already completed these steps.
