Deposit Deadline Extended for Fall 2020 and Virtual Classroom Resources

As the impact of COVID-19 has led to secondary school closures and SAT/ACT cancellations, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has extended the deposit deadline for accepted students to June 1. Saunders College of Business and RIT recognize that giving families more time to make the major decision of financing student's educational futures is the right thing to do. Saunders encourages those who have applied to ask about additional financial aid options at this time.

To date, RIT has its largest applicant pool in the university’s history, and more than 1,000 students have already committed for fall 2020. Students and families are encouraged to go to the RIT Freshman Admissions webpage to stay current on the news related to the high school class of 2020.

Bring Saunders virtually into your classroom for a customizable experience meeting the interests of your students. Our faculty and staff can talk about preparing for a successful career in business and technology while teaching your students emerging topics in business.
