Alumni Benefits and Resources


Do you need to do professional or academic research? Read the news? Review trade journals? By creating an alumni account, you'll enjoy access to select ProQuest databases.

In addition to these databases, you also have access to other resources from RIT Libraries which do not require authentication. To gain access to either benefit, you must create an alumni account if you don't already have one. 

You will need to use your RIT alumni username and password to connect to these valuable resources.


RIT offers free and reduced-cost education as part of our partnership with edX, the leading nonprofit online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT in 2012. Fueled by industry demand and available around the globe, RITx programs and offerings provide critical, career-advancing skills.

RITx offerings are massive open online courses (MOOCs), containing high-quality curriculum developed by RIT faculty and instructors. Any given offering may have hundreds or even thousands of students in it at one time from around the globe. RIT has implemented pedagogical and technological innovations to allow learners to engage in rich dialogue with one another and with instructors among a global and diverse population. Many of the courses are self-paced, and while there is not one-to-one interaction between instructors and students, these innovations enable a quality learning experience with rigor and assessment.
