Financial Aid and Scholarships
Make RIT financially within reach
We realize that you are taking an important step in your life; one that is exciting, yet challenging. Since you have many other things to consider as you prepare for college, we want to help make your financial aid experience as smooth as possible. Currently, more than 13,000 RIT undergraduate and graduate students receive over $291 million dollars in financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional resources, in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment.
RIT attracts students from more than 100 countries
RIT hosts more than 2,600 international students on the main Rochester, New York campus. The variety of backgrounds and perspectives represented in the RIT community enriches the living and learning experience for all. As students interact on team-based projects, in campus housing and in day-to-day activities, they become enriched and better prepared for the opportunities and challenges of global interdependence.
