Active Campus Life

Active Campus Life

Active learning is not confined to just lectures and labs. Being part of an American university means being part of a diverse community with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds (18 nationalities). This diversity is reflected to the variety of the activities on campus. While Student Clubs group students that share similar interests in sports, music, literature, dance, debate, charity and so on, the Public Forums help our students to incorporate the real world practices to the learning process. In addition, the field trips and other activities organized by the Student Government contribute to an enthusiastic student life on campus.

Enrollment Information

In order to be considered for admission at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) students need to demonstrate their proficiency in English and Math, as well as proof of successful completion of high school at a high standard.

Students are classified in two different enrollment categories based on the entrance exam results:

Admission Criteria


Students who have demonstrated above average knowledge in English and Mathematics are granted direct enrolment at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K). At this level, they start directly with the Writing Seminar and Interdisciplinary Math I classes, which are considered to be the highest level classes for a freshmen student. In addition, they are allowed to register up to three other RIT credited classes.

Students, who have demonstrated that they need additional preparation in English, writing and comprehensive skills, are granted enrollment in this level. In the first academic semester, students take intensive English and Math classes. After successful completion, students take the Writing Seminar and Interdisciplinary I classes. In addition, they get to take up to two other RIT credited classes, based on their assigned class schedule.

The Alternative Admission Process is an opportunity for students who wish to apply at RIT Kosovo but are unable to complete the entrance exams due to the pandemic.

This system is similar to our regular admission process but with two main differences in English and Math criteria evaluation:

  • Instead of taking the SAT or TOEFL, students will have the opportunity to be evaluated through an online interview with the Admission Committee (English Criteria).
  • Instead of taking the SAT or the Institutional Math Exam, students will have the opportunity to submit their Math Grades from High School (Math Criteria).

*Please note* Students who receive admission through this process will NOT be eligible to apply for a merit-based scholarship at RIT Kosovo. They will ONLY be eligible to apply for a need-based scholarship.

What are the Alternative Admission Process steps?

  1. Submit the online Application Form
  2. Submit your Admission Essay
  3. Submit two Letters of Recommendation
  4. Submit high school certificates
  5. Undergo the Interview with Admissions Committee
  6. Submit your Extracurricular Activities Certificates (optional)
