The Student Services Office is open.  Advisors and all others in the office are working on a rotating basis in person, and most advisor meetings will be through Zoom.  Please use Starfish for available appointment times.  Please see the Zoom access information below for walk-in times, and check your e-mail from your advisor for updates to Zoom access information.

Saunders College recognizes the importance of providing a variety of advising and support services designed to ensure your academic success. Academic Advisors can: 

  • Support student transition into the university; provide tools to support autonomy and personal responsibility
  • Help students navigate registration, degree requirements, and program expectations
  • Focus on academic policies, procedures, and resources and how they relate to the academic success of our students
  • Support students with unique and/or special needs

Transfer Credit

If you are interested in taking a course from another institution and transferring credit back to RIT, please be sure to work with your academic advisor and review the information on the Registrar's Web site.  At  this site, read the information in the section called Transfer Credit Equivalencies.  Then you can search for courses at other institutions that have already been reviewed by RIT for transfer credit.  You can also request that RIT review courses that are not listed.

General Education Requirements

Please view your Academic Requirements in your SIS account, and you can search classes in SIS by attribute for General Education Perspectives (Artistic, Social, Scientific Principles and Natural Science Inquiry).
