Every year, more than 1,200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students from all around the world come to RIT to take advantage of our innovative academic programs as well as our outstanding access and support services. A world-class education, state-of-the-art facilities and opportunities for social and cultural enrichment are all here at RIT.
Access & Support Services
RIT will provide the educational access services you need. You can request:
- Sign language transliteration
- Assistive listening systems
- Note taking
- Speech-to-text real-time translation (usually C-Print). Alternative services will also be provided as required.
- See our full list of support services.
Tutition & Fees
Because RIT receives special federal support, students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing pay about one-third of RIT’s regular tuition rate. The substantial tuition reduction for deaf and hard-of hearing students enjoy makes RIT a truly exceptional value. See our NTID graduate student tuition fees.
