New England Regional Student Program (RSP)

Rhode Island College participates in the New England Regional Student Program (RSP) administered by the New England Board of Higher Education. 

Through this program, students may enroll in a specific program/major at Rhode Island College for in-state tuition plus 50%. The student’s program of study must not be offered at a public institution in the student’s home state, or Rhode Island College must be closer in traveling time to the student’s legal residence than a public institution offering an approved program in the home state.

Students must remain in the program for which they applied or may transfer only into another RSP program; otherwise, they will be charged out-of-state tuition fees as of the date of transfer.
