Finding the Courses You'll Register for on MyRIC
While the undergraduate and graduate class schedules give you a sense of what is being offered and when, our MyRIC portal will provide you with course descriptions to help you decide what to register for. As someone who has never attended Rhode Island College before, you will need to create an account to obtain a user ID and password in order to register for classes, but you can view our summer course offerings and descriptions without an account by going to MyRIC and clicking on Search for classes under the Class Search heading, which is immediately on the homepage of MyRIC.
Call/class numbers are the five-digit number preceding each course and are very important for these reasons:
- this is the number you will need in order to register for, add, or drop a given course
- clicking on a call number will provide you with the course description
Also, if a course has multiple sections, please note the unique section number. You may not register for more than one section of a course.
Some courses require departmental consent to enroll. These courses are identified in Class Search on the Class Details page with the phrase "Department Consent Required." A course may have this designation for reasons such as: minimum grade point average, earned credits, major, or permission of department chair. Contact the offering department for registration information.
The college catalog contains degree requirements for all undergraduate programs of study, rules that affect students, descriptions of courses, and a list of the faculty and administration of the college. You must know the rules given in the catalog for your degree program. The catalog is the document of authority for all students.
