Services for Students

RIT/NTID offers a wide range of services for students to support your academic goals and personal interests.

Access & Support Services

The Department of Access Services provides interpreting, notetaking, and real-time captioning (C-print) services to the RIT community so that all members can enjoy full access to communication.

Access services enable deaf and hard-of-hearing students to register and fully participate in more than 200 highly competitive academic programs. Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing students alike use access services to communicate with each other in a variety of extra-curricular activities associated with student clubs and organizations, entertainment and sports events, and RIT programs and services.

More information about access services available to students in other colleges of RIT can be found here.
