Employer Sponsored Tuition Plan (ESTP)

Rochester Institute of Technology’s Employer Sponsored Tuition Plan (ESTP) provides qualified students the option of deferring tuition payment until after the end of the semester and grades have been issued.  

The program is available to participating companies and their employees attending both on campus and online.  RIT extends a full-semester deferment to students from participating companies.  Click here for a current list of RIT ESTP companies and their code numbers, which will be needed to complete the Application for Payment Deferment.    

Please Note:  The deferment can be rescinded by RIT if notified by the employer that tuition benefits are no longer in effect or if the student is not in good financial standing with the University.

ESTP Requirements

  1. Complete the ESTP Application for Payment Deferment.  You must complete the Student Information section and your employer must complete the Employer Certification.  Only one form needs to be completed for the entire academic year.
  2. Submit the completed form in its entirety to the Office of Student Financial Services at RIT.
