How to invite Guest Speakers/Presenters

Hosting Guest Presenters in CAD: five options

All related CAD forms can be found HERE

 

OPTION #1     Visiting presenter is not offered an honorarium; just travel, lodging, and hosted meals. Faculty/Staff Sponsor initiates guest’s travel arrangements through Tzell Travel (or other RIT approved agency) to be direct-billed. Faculty/Staff Sponsor provides their RIT UID# and name of guest presenter to the travel agency, then has the guest presenter make arrangements directly with the travel agent. The School/Dept.’s Sr. Staff or Project Assistant makes the guest’s reservation at the Radisson next to RIT. read more

What is Degree Audit ???

Degree Audit is a new advising tool that the RIT Registrar’s Office has developed to track student progress toward degree completion.

This system is designed to replace our old audit approach of checking off classes taken on paper Planning Sheets.

  • Degree Audit is accessible to students, advisors, faculty members, and administrators.
  • Each student’s “worksheet” in Degree Audit is updated with current information each time an audit is requested.
  • Degree Audit will be used to assist with the certification process.
  • Everyone will see the same information, tracked the same way, at the same time!

Students entering RIT in the following academic years will have access to an online degree audit:

  • 2013-2014
  • 2014-2015
  • 2015-2016

Students who entered prior to the 2013-2014 academic year will follow an IAP through to graduation. (SIS will not generate a degree audit for these students) read more
