National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID)

NTID, one of the seven colleges of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), is the world’s first and largest technological college for students who are deaf. NTID represents the first concerted effort to educate large numbers of students who are deaf within a college campus planned principally for hearing students. Among RIT’s 13,000 full- and part-time students are nearly 1,100 students who are deaf from the United States and other countries. NTID offers diplomas, certificates, and associate degrees in 30 technological and professional programs through its Center for Arts and Sciences and Center for Technical Studies. More than 41 percent of NTID students are enrolled in RIT's seven other colleges where they have 200 majors available to them. Through the Center for Baccalaureate and Graduate Studies, students enjoy access to faculty and staff who use sign language, 100 interpreters, note takers, and other support services to foster their success.
