At RIT, your health and well-being are a top priority, which is why students are required to complete a wellness course requirement to graduate. Although there is a wellness course requirement, there is no limit to the number of classes you can take!
Bachelor’s Degree Requirements
Students must complete two different wellness courses
Note: Two different courses would include different levels of and/or forms of a course that may have the same course number (e.g. Karate/Beginners and Karate/Advanced would count as 2 different courses).
Associate’s Degree Requirements
Students must complete one wellness course
Transfer Student Requirements
Transfer students who have completed courses at another university can submit a syllabus for evaluation to obtain a wellness waiver. Your Academic Advisor will assist in this process and determine whether or not the transfer credit is approved.
Because health and wellness are a priority at RIT, the university provides funding for 2 undergraduate student classes at the base course fee. Additional courses and courses with a fee over $105 will be the responsibility of the student. Information about course fees can be found in the notes section in SIS.
Off-campus courses classes are likely to carry a higher fee than others. If you have billing questions, please contact Student Financial Services
