At RIT, students have access to a number of resources, tools, and services to support them in achieving academic success. Here are some of the primary academic support resources:
Academic Success Center
The Academic Success Center offers a number of programs and services that assist and empower students to achieve academic success including individual and group instruction, tutoring, content-specific support in math and physics, peer to peer learning, and online content.
College Restoration Program
College Restoration Program is an intensive, one-semester academic intervention program for students facing academic suspension or probation. Students must be referred to CRP through their academic departments.
Department of Access Services
The Department of Access Services provides accessible education for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Services include interpreting, note taking, and captioning services.
Disability Services Office
The Disability Services Office supports all RIT students who identify as having a permanent or temporary disability. Students need to request academic accommodations each semester through this office.
Multicultural Center for Academic Success
The Multicultural Center for Academic Success supports the cultural and academic needs of the African American, Latino American, and Native American student populations, as well as other multicultural populations, through a variety of services and programming.
The Ombuds Office provides confidential and neutral assistance to students, faculty, and staff who have concerns affecting their studies or work. The Ombuds Office listens, offers information about policies and procedures, and helps people examine options for resolving concerns.
Students can check out books, reserve a study room, borrow a laptop, get help with research, and much more with the RIT Libraries. Each college has a subject librarian to assist students with questions specific to their field.
University Advising Office
The University Advising Office coordinates undergraduate advising at the university as well as targeted student success initiatives.
University Writing Center
The Writing Center provides both individualized and group feedback and guidance on academic and professional writing at any stage of the writing process.
The Academic Support page has more information on these resources and others directed to specific populations, including the Higher Education Opportunity Program, McNair Scholars Program, Native American Future Stewards Program, and Spectrum Support Program.
