NTID Student Eligibility
The National Technical Institute for the Deaf received a separate and different appropriation to assist NTID and NTID-supported students. All eligible students will receive an email from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships with details regarding their grant.
The U.S. Department of Education has determined only U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens are considered for these funds. International students are not eligible to receive the CRRSAA Emergency Grant.
To expedite receipt of funds, students are encouraged to set up Direct Deposit by March 29 for student accounts (different than Payroll account) to receive CRRSAA funds.
To set up your direct deposit:
- Login to eservices
- Under the refund navigation within the Financial Services section, click “Add Bank Account” and follow the steps to set up direct deposit.
Group 1: University-coordinated Pre-arrival Hotel Quarantine
A portion of the CRRSAA funds are designated to offset use of the university-coordinated hotel quarantine option for students who were required by RIT and New York state to quarantine before circulating on campus. The charges for the university-coordinated hotel quarantine were applied to a recipient’s account or reimbursed to the student. Eligible students have received an email regarding this issue. If you have questions, please contact Student Financial Services by calling 585-475-6186. Non-domestic students were also reimbursed using RIT funding, not CRRSAA funding.
Group 2: NTID-Supported Students with Valid FAFSA on File with RIT
Grants will be made available to all NTID-supported students with a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with RIT, enrolled in Spring 2021 as of March 10. RIT used information provided on the 2020-21 FAFSA to measure the socioeconomic status of students, with the neediest students receiving the largest grants.
