RIT wastewater trended lower over the past week and has now plateaued, reflecting pockets of COVID still circulating on campus. We must remain vigilant in our behavior as we approach the end of the semester. The RIT COVID Alert Level remains at Yellow.
Fall registration opens today. Colleges have developed schedules that allow the majority of classes to be in person or in a blended format. Schedules have been planned using current occupancy restrictions, but, if federal and state regulations regarding classroom occupancy and physical distancing are relaxed, RIT will migrate most of the blended classes to fully in person. Additionally, approximately 83 percent of first-year courses and 80 percent of second-year courses are in person or in a blended format. Students can check the Student Information System (SIS) now for their specific enrollment appointment date and time.
In light of current New York state regulations, RIT will not allow guests to indoor commencement ceremonies. All ceremonies will be live-streamed. Ceremonies are planned for both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.
New York residents 16 years of age or older are now eligible to schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments can be scheduled with individual providers, pharmacies, local health departments, and hospitals. RIT students living in Rochester (on- or off-campus) are considered Monroe County residents.
Ramadan halal iftar and suhoor meals will be available during the holy month. Pick up starts April 13 at Bytes in Monroe Hall from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily.
