RIT announces start of summer semester registration, March 27
More than 300 courses in over 90 disciplines offered in-person and online
Rochester Institute of Technology has announced that registration is open for its summer semester that will be offered in in-person and online formats. Summer semester registration begins March 27.
Undergraduate and graduate students can take advantage of a 12-week session (May 18-Aug. 15) and two six-week sessions (May 18-June 30 and July 3-Aug. 15). Graduate students can also enroll in a targeted seven-week session (May 18-July 6).
The goals are for students to continue making progress toward their degrees, earn additional credit hours to catch up or get ahead, dedicate themselves to immersive undergraduate research, and explore interests outside of their majors, all while taking advantage of flexible schedules. While there will be many courses are offered online this summer, some on-campus courses will be offered.
In addition, matriculated undergraduate students will receive grants when they register for six or more undergraduate credits this summer. Students registering for six to eight undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $2,000 for the summer semester; students registering for nine to 11 undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $3,500 for the summer semester; and students registering for 12 or more undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $5,000 for the summer semester. Students are eligible for only one financial award. Students supported by RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf will receive an adjusted grant amount.
RIT’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will apply the grants, which are in addition to any other need-based eligibility the students may have, as a credit toward summer semester bills.
“RIT is giving our students opportunities to remain connected to the university, their professors, and their classmates through summer course offerings. Students can enroll in rigorous courses and are able to focus solely on those courses, earn extra credits toward their degrees, and continue to exercise their minds throughout the summer,” said Joe Loffredo, RIT associate vice president and registrar.
Popular courses available this summer include Linear Algebra, Intro to Statistics I & II, Applied Statistics, Mass Communications, Intro to Psychology, and Calculus, among others.
The complete list of course offerings is available on the RIT summer semester 2023 webpage.
