Rochester Institute of Technology has a growing number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), sometimes referred to as Asperger’s Syndrome, registered with the Disability Services Office. We value these students as part of our diverse community and acknowledge that some individuals may need additional support in transitioning to college.

RIT’s Spectrum Support Program (SSP) is one of the largest formal programs in the nation focused on meeting the unique needs of highly capable college students on the Autism Spectrum. The Spectrum Support Program provides individualized support to students on the Spectrum to assist them with the initial transition to life at RIT and help ensure continued success through graduation.     Read more, click through  . . .
