Veterans and Military Enrollment Services

2012 Military Friendly SchoolsRIT has a tradition of honoring and supporting active duty military and veterans. For over 50 years, RIT has had a Veterans Services Office dedicated to supporting and advocating for active duty military, veterans, and their dependents—helping them from the moment they consider applying to RIT all the way until graduation. It doesn’t end there: RIT’s Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education offers assistance to its alumni throughout their entire careers. At RIT, we understand active duty military and student veterans’ needs and we are committed to helping each one of our students reach their full potential.

Our Veterans Services Office is here to help you with your questions. The information below will guide you through the benefit application process at RIT and provides helpful resources including an overview of Military Chapters, the Yellow Ribbon program, and the process of requesting Military Transcripts. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding your benefits and encourage you to contact our office with any questions.
