​The determination of residency for tuition purposes is made by the Director of Admissions for new students. The residency policy for tuition is set by the Council on Postsecondary Education and is available HERE.

In addition, some students (including undocumented students), may qualify for in-state tuition based upon Rhode Island high school attendance under a recent policy enacted by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education. For more information, please review the following information:

In order to assist students who are unable to meet the cost of financing a college education, the Office of Student Financial Aid administers an extensive program of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment opportunities. Demonstrated financial need is the primary factor used in the awarding of financial aid, although some scholarships are given each year in recognition of superior academic achievement or special talent.

Approximately 92 percent of full-time freshmen applied for financial aid in the fall 2011 semester, and 70 percent of those students were awarded need-based financial assistance. The average need-based financial aid package was $9,843. This includes scholarships, grants, loans, and federal work-study employment.​​​​​​
