How to Apply

Admission to RIT is competitive, but our admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations, and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from a variety of geographical, social, cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.

Apply & Manage Application

We have several application options available.  Whichever method you choose to apply, we invite you to create a myRIT account to organize your application. MyRIT also allows you to track the status of your application credentials, receive your admission decision, and more.
