Who We're Looking For

Summary

All applicants to RIT’s graduate programs must hold-or currently be completing-a four year baccalaureate degree, or the U.S. equivalent, granted by an accredited college or university. In general, we look for an overall GPA of 3.0 (B) or better for the applicant’s undergraduate transcript.

Admission to RIT is competitive, but our admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations, and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from a variety of geographical, social, cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.

Our students are excited about their education, engaged in campus life, and driven to develop their professional potential. Hold a baccalaureate degree in physical science, mathematics, computer science, or engineering from a regionally accredited college or university (for students with a bachelor's degree in another area or those lacking adequate academic preparation, bridge and foundation course work may be necessary prior to full admission),
Have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.2 (out of 4.0) in course work in mathematical, science, engineering, and computer science subject areas.
