Tuition Assessment Policies

Degree seeking students are assessed the tuition and fee rate associated with their program, regardless of the course taken. Non-degree seeking students are assessed the day undergraduate tuition rate for day undergraduate courses and the graduate rate for graduate courses.

Students accepted into specific undergraduate academic programs by The Office of Part-time and Graduate Enrollment Services are assessed tuition at the part-time rate if registered for less than 12 credit hours. If registered for full time (12 to 18 hours) students will be assessed the full time undergraduate rate.

Courses taken for audit are assessed tuition at one-half the normally assessed rate.

Degree seeking undergraduate students registered for over 18 credit hours are charged full-time tuition plus the applicable credit-hour rate for each hour over 18.

Degree seeking graduate students registered for more than 18 credit hours are charged the full-time rate plus the applicable credit-hour rate for each hour over 18.

RIT’s definition of full-time status for graduate students is 9 or more hours of semester credit for reporting purposes. For tuition assessment, student will be charged the part time rate for 1 to 11 hour and the full time rate at 12 to 18 hours. Financial aid will be applied accordingly.

The Institute reserves the right to change its price and pricing policies without prior notice.


Financial Standing

Students, former students, and graduates are in good financial standing when their account is paid in full through the Student Financial Services Office. A late payment fee will be charged to all student accounts that become past due. This includes, but is not limited to, deferred payment accounts that become past due. Those whose account is not paid in full will not receive transcripts, diplomas, or other forms of recognition or recommendation from the university. Students must be in good financial standing with RIT to register for classes.
