Student Academic Support

Support that Leads to Success

RIT has made academic continuity a priority, and we’re here to help you utilize online and other modes of learning successfully. As instruction continues, so will all student support services.

Student Support for Distance Learning

RIT has provided resources to help you progress toward your academic goals while learning via alternative methods. These include remote learning tips, help with myCourses and Zoom video conferencing, and communication strategies.

COVID-19 Technology Fund

Limited support is available for students unable to access the technology needed to meet their academic needs. The COVID-19 Technology Fund provides support through issuing hardware or small grant funding for students with technology needs or connectivity issues relating to the Fall 2020 course delivery modes. This fund was made possible by generous donations from the RIT community.
