Adult & Continuing Education Programs

Non-traditional/adult students at RIT are often 25 years or older, and juggling careers, families and everyday lives. For just these reasons, they often have a unique advantage over traditional students - the ability to apply real world knowledge and experience in an appreciative, non-threatening environment.


As an adult learner you may be feeling apprehensive about returning to college, but don’t be! RIT has a support system that goes far beyond your family and friends, and we are ready to help you complete your educational goals. Take advantage of all that RIT has to offer, and so much more.
