  • The Spectrum Support Program (SSP) was designed with a particular focus on meeting the needs of RIT students who identify on the autism spectrum.    
  • Students interested in working with SSP must meet all the academic requirements of admittance to RIT and plan to matriculate into an undergraduate bachelor’s degree program at RIT.  
  • However, application for admittance to RIT and application to SSP are separate and distinct processes. 
  • Students wishing to be considered for the Spectrum Support Program must also submit an SSP Application Request Form and complete the SSP application process. 
  • Admittance to RIT does not guarantee a space in the Spectrum Support Program.  SSP staff will make SSP application decisions based on space and program fit. 
  • Due to the limited space in the Spectrum Support Program, not all students who request services will receive support from SSP.
