Family Orientation

We at RIT know the important role you play as a parent or family member in your student's life. The Parent and Family Programs office is here to support you during this transition and beyond. Welcome to the Tiger family.

Family Orientation Newsletters

Make sure you're prepared to send your student to RIT by reading the Family Orientation Newsletters. These newsletters will include information about deadlines, campus resources, and tips as you navigate this summer. There will be additional ways for you to engage with RIT through Family Orientation videos and our Tiger Parent Talks series -- information about how to participate will be included in future newsletters. 

Make sure your student updates your email address at to receive the newsletters.
