ACADEMIC PROCEDURES, POLICIES AND TIPS FOR RIC STUDENTS
This resource guide has been developed in response to student questions about college academic policies and procedures. While the answers exist in a number of places such as the catalog, course bulletins, web, or emails you receive, compiling this information in a single source may be more useful for you.
The goal is to help you successfully navigate your way to graduation and a degree from Rhode Island College. Having a common core of information can help you avoid stumbling blocks in your academic career.
What does it mean if you see ∅ or on your RIConnect account?
How do you change your major?
Who advises you and when?
How can you make GPA predictions?
