Web Site https://www.rit.edu/emcs/admissions/apply/freshman/how-to-apply/early-decision
Application Deadline Wednesday November 15, 2017
Description

Early decision is a great option for freshmen applicants who have identified RIT as their first-choice college.  There are several advantages to applying Early Decision: 

·          Early notification of an admissions decision

·          Priority selection during the housing assignment process

·          Early financial aid package

 

Application Process

To apply for Early Decision, please select the appropriate field on the admission application and submit it along with all supporting credentials (including transcripts, SAT or ACT scores, and recommendation) by November 15 in order to have your Early Decision notification mailed by mid-January. Like other Early Decision Plans, students can only apply to one college/university as an Early Decision applicant. You may apply to other colleges at the same time under their Regular Decision or Early Action Plans.

 Early Decision applicants who would like to receive an early estimate of financial aid eligibility should submit the FAFSA. The recommended filing date is on or before December 1. RIT will provide Early Decision applicants with a financial aid package before they need to submit their acceptance deposit on February 1.
