Although we strongly encourage a campus visit, we understand that it isn't always possible to make the trip to Rochester.

Our admissions staff travels to various parts of the country to interview students in their hometowns and to give information sessions about RIT. You can also meet an admissions representative at area college fairs and selected high schools and community colleges.

Hometown Information Sessions for Prospective Students

Prospective students, both freshmen and transfers, and their families are invited to attend a Hometown Information Session at a hotel in their area.  The RIT Admissions staff covers topics such as admission requirements, application process, student life, academic programs, and cost, scholarships and financial aid.

Accepted Student Receptions

You and your parents/guardians are invited to celebrate your acceptance to RIT! Find out what to expect from now until fall and meet other students from your area who also have been accepted. Admission representatives, current RIT students, and regional alumni will be present. The reception will include an RIT overview presentation, information on housing, orientation, cooperative education, and student life, as well as a student/alumni panel. Please join us!

College Fair, School Visit and Portfolio Day Events

RIT representatives and alumni representatives will be present at many upcomnig events. Event details will be added as they are confirmed.

Hometown Interviews

RIT is happy to offer informational interviews for prospective students who are seniors in high school and prospective transfer students in select cities across the country. Interviews are scheduled to last 30 minutes and are hosted by Admission Officers or alumni volunteers. Students should come to the interview prepared to speak about themselves and their interests and have questions about RIT. Dress for the interview is informal. Students are encouraged to bring a transcript, test scores and/or resume to the interview.  A personal interview is not required to be considered for admission to the university. Hometown Interviews will be offered starting in September.
