Costs and Financial Aid

RIT/NTID receives support from the federal government, and as a result, students enrolled in the American Sign Language-English Interpretation program pay less than one-half of RIT’s tuition.

At RIT/NTID, we pride ourselves on making a great education truly affordable.

RIT's Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will assist you and your family in identifying sources of financial aid to help meet the cost of a quality education. We realize that you are taking an important step in your life—one that is exciting, yet challenging. Since you have many other things to consider as you prepare for college, we want to help make your financial aid experience as smooth as possible.

While the primary responsibility for your education rests with you and your family, the RIT Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will assist you in identifying additional financial aid resources. Currently, more than 13,500 RIT undergraduate and graduate students receive over $300 million dollars in financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional resources, in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment. We expect to continue this commitment by assisting the same number of students for the upcoming academic year.

Start by filing the Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once you have completed these forms, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will review your information and send you a financial aid package. Your financial aid award may include need-based grants, loans, or employment opportunities.
