Summer Send-Off Events
The Office of Alumni Relations invites new students and their families to attend one of RIT’s Summer Send-Off events planned in ten cities across the country in July and August. At these events, you can connect with fellow incoming RIT students and parents from your area before you head to Rochester, and hear from seasoned Tiger families, current students, and alumni about the RIT experience. If there is a Send-Off in your area, you have been sent an invitation by mail. You can also find information about locations and dates online. Please be sure to register if you plan to attend a Send-Off. Space is limited and registration generally closes one week before the event date.
All billing notifications are sent electronically to students at their RIT email address. Your student has the option of granting parent access to their eServices account. Once you’ve been granted access and created your own account, you will receive all notifications and have the option to view and pay tuition statements. Your student can also choose to grant you access to view final grades and class schedules, check balances and add funds to Tiger Bucks and Food Debit accounts, and view the status of financial aid.
The fall 2018 billing statement will be generated on July 6 and will be due by August 15. Please visit the Student Financial Services website for more information about billing and an optional payment plan.
Financial Aid Notifications
Financial aid award notifications for 2018-19 returning students have been going out since late March. Students are notified by email when their financial aid awards are viewable and can be accepted on the Financial Aid and Scholarships section of eServices. Financial Aid awards are contingent on students meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards after each term. Several notices have been sent to returning students who may need additional information to determine financial aid eligibility, depending on when the FAFSA was completed. Students who have not yet submitted requested information may not see financial aid awards appear on the July billing notice and as such should submit missing information as soon as possible.
