Application Instructions and Special Notes

As you begin your application, please keep in mind the following items that are required as part of the application process:

  • You will be asked to write three short-answer essays. It is advised to write these in a word processing program and then copy/paste them into this online system.
  • You will need to upload a recent photograph. Photographs must be smaller than 4 MB in size and should be JPEG or PNG format. An error will occur if the photo is larger. You may email photos up to 8 MB in size to the admissions department or mail a physical copy to the admissions office.
  • An application fee will be processed before you submit the application. If you do not have a credit card, contact the admissions office to have them arrange for alternate means of payment.
  • You will need to submit official academic transcripts for all colleges or universities you have attended and completed six or more hours. The academic institution will need to send this directly to the RTS admissions office.
  • You will be asked to supply up to two references as part of this application process. It is wise to alert the references that they will be receiving an email from the application system. You may want to advise them to look in their spam/junk mail folder for the email that has a special link to allow them to fill out the form.
  • Visiting Students Only:
    • All visiting students must provide a letter from their program advisor stating their approval of your study at RTS.
  • New York City Applicants Only:
