With a rich history encompassing over 175 years, RIT invites students, employers, companies, parents, and alumni to learn more about our dynamic academic programs and our ever-changing campus.

Coronavirus Information:
We are following this situation moment-by-moment and using the best information possible (i.e. CDC, Rochester-based health agencies, location-specific information, etc.) in deciding whether to reschedule admission events for admitted students.

As such, we have made the following changes to our deposit deadline and visitation schedule:

  • The Regular Decision deposit deadline has been extended to June 1.
  • Accepted Student Open House will be rescheduled to sometime in May and we will notify you when registration is available.
  • Beginning on Thursday, March 19, and until further notice, we will not be hosting any admissions visitors on-campus.

We will notify you as soon as possible when visitors may return to campus. Until then, stay informed, safe, and, especially, healthy. The health and safety of our community is paramount and this extends to our many visitors, future students, and families.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Congratulations Accepted Students

We’ve extended the deadline for undergraduate deposits until June 1st.
