Thanks for your interest in joining The Loop. This iteration of the Loop launched in October 2014 and we are currently welcoming Applicants, and RIT community members to join. The process to join The Loop differs based upon your affiliation with RIT (example: those with an RIT computer account join vs. RIT applicants who do not yet have an RIT computer account). Therefore we ask that you choose your affiliation with RIT from the tabs below and follow those instructions to join.
Haven't yet applied to RIT? Apply now to receive your invitation to The Loop.
RIT Applicants are those who have submitted an application to RIT using either the RIT online/paper application or the Common Application. We are inviting all applicants to join The Loop regardless of how you applied.
Email invitations to applicants are periodically being sent out. Check the email account that you used on your admissions application for an invitation email. This email contains a special link that allows you to sign in and create a password for your Loop account.
If you are unable to locate your email invitation you may request another one by using the Resend Activation Email Form. When Filling out this form, be sure to enter the email address you applied to RIT with. If this fails, go ahead and create a Support Request.
RIT faculty and staff who are interested in representing their college or department are invited to interact with admission applicants in The Loop. You will be asked to sign in with your RIT username and password, which will activate your Loop account and associate you with your college and/or department.
