RIT’s most successful students are anything but typical

At RIT, we don’t do “typical.” In addition to our diverse population of full-time undergraduate students, we have talented, ambitious, and forward-thinking students who study at RIT in many other ways.

They study online. On-campus. Part-time. Full-time. Undergraduate. Graduate. Non-credit. Degree. Single course. They are working professionals. Changing careers. Moving forward in their field. Enhancing their skills. Increasing their marketability.

Learn how to transform your goals into reality at RIT.


Unlock your potential with lifelong learning

RIT has a long heritage in thinking beyond classic higher education parameters, helping working professionals to jump-start, advance, and retool their careers and lives. We offer corporate learning experiences, leadership development, opportunities through strategic partnerships with Rochester Regional Health System, workshops, seminars and tuition deferment programs.

Although our love of learning knows no bounds, RIT degree programs and other learning experiences are designed with employer and job market demand in mind. You’ll be able to put theory into practice immediately in your chosen field.
