 We are committed to helping students on the autism spectrum make connections at RIT for academic, social and career success. 

The Spectrum Support Program provides innovative support that positively impacts the college experience for our neurodiverse students. We seek to create a campus culture of acceptance and support through collaboration, consultation, and training.

The Neurodiverse Hiring Initiative was developed in partnership with RIT’s Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education to strengthen the graduation and employment outcomes of neurodiverse students. We connect our students with employers who are seeking to diversify their workforce.

Interested in Enrolling?

Incoming RIT Students can request an application to SSP once they have accepted an offer of admission to RIT and reserved their place in RIT's entering class. Current RIT Students can request to apply at any time. See Apply for more details.
