RIT administrators expect students will enjoy a more traditional fall semester, albeit one with masking requirements. Most classes will be held in person and related academic activities will resume. Courses that were formerly instructed as A/B splits will be mainly in person, and most spaces will operate at nearly full capacity for on-campus instruction, research, campus programs, and services. Grading returns to letter grades from pass/fail, with the understanding that faculty and staff will work with students to maintain academic continuity if specific situations arise.
RIT’s international and graduate student populations who may still be impacted by restrictions brought about by COVID-19 are encouraged to reach out to the RIT Graduate School or International Student Services.
The university is monitoring evolving CDC guidance, particularly in light of the spread of variants, and will respond to changing campus conditions as necessary.
