For help with Program requirements and curriculum questions, to talk about a personal problem that may impact on academic performance, or to discuss a wide range of potential career choices and options, students will work one-on-one with Academic Advising staff and Program faculty of the College of Health Sciences and Technology. Advisors are experienced in providing support and guidance for students to ensure their success through the RIT Experience.
Students are encouraged to meet with their academic and faculty advisor on a regular basis, when there are questions or if academic interests change. The advising team (academic and faculty) are an important resource for you as you progress through your RIT experience. Advising is required for new first-year and transfer students. However, all students are highly encouraged to meet with their academic and faculty advisor each semester.
First-year students are required to meet with their advisor in the Fall and Spring semester of their First year.
Incoming transfer students are required to meet with their advisor in their first semester at RIT.
All students are highly encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor each semester.
The University Advising Office is an excellent resource for general questions related to academic advising at RIT. If any member of the RIT community--student, faculty, or staff--needs assistance with advising related issues, the University Advising Office is a great resource. If you are unsure of who your advisor is or have general advising questions we are here to help you.
