Sign language interpreting is a fascinating, challenging and rapidly expanding field. With more than 1,100 deaf and hard-of-hearing students, 18,000 hearing students on campus, and more than 100 deaf and hard-of-hearing faculty and staff members, RIT provides you with a unique environment and excellent opportunities to increase your knowledge of cultures and enhance your English, American Sign Language and interpreting skills.
2024-2025 FAFSA® Update
Although families can now submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), colleges/universities will not receive your FAFSA data from the U.S. Department of Education until mid-March, which will delay financial aid offers until mid-April, at the earliest. This is much later than anticipated. In our commitment to supporting families, RIT is taking a proactive approach by offering the RIT Financial Aid Application to ensure accepted students have a financial aid estimate by mid-March. In addition, the FAFSA filing deadline for Regular Decision applicants has been extended to March 1.
Rest assured, despite the challenges of the FAFSA roll-out, RIT is ready and we’re here to help each step of the way.
