Majors and Programs​

Important COVID-19 Coronavirus Response Update

The health and safety of all visitors to our campus is of utmost importance. At this time, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has decided to postpone our admissions events. Please stay turned as we create new ways for students to connect with us.

In order to provide our future anchors with ample time to enroll at RIC, we have extended the $200 enrollment deposit deadline from May 1st, 2020 to June 1st, 2020. Until further notice, we will continue to review qualified applications on a rolling basis.

We thank you for your patience and continued interest in Rhode Island College.
