Eligibility

The goal of the Spectrum Support Program is to positively impact the college experience at RIT, particularly for bachelor's degree seeking students  who identify on the autism spectrum.  

Students interested in working with the Spectrum Support Program (SSP) must meet all the academic requirements of admittance to RIT and be matriculated into an undergraduate bachelor’s degree program prior to  program enrollment.  

SSP does not require specific documentation of an autism spectrum disorder as a condition of enrollment in SSP, however, students should identify as a  member of the community of students on the autism spectrum at RIT.   

Students wishing to receive academic adjustments or residential accommodations must register with the Disability Services Office and provide documentation of disability.

Students should enroll in SSP services as soon as they have made the decision to attend RIT.  Enroll by July 1st.
