Partnerships with Other Colleges

Rhode Island College is pleased to offer articulation agreements with other colleges to provide a seamless transfer of credits. Instead of retaking courses at RIC, we're able to provide transfer credit for the courses you've already taken at your previous school whose content is similar to RIC courses.

Consider an Additional Option: The RIC/CCRI Joint Admissions Agreement

Current Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) students with an interest in transferring to RIC should ask about our Joint Admissions Agreement (JAA). The JAA between RIC and CCRI allows CCRI students to easily transfer to RIC. Students can begin working toward one of 23 bachelor's degrees at RIC while earning their associate's degree at CCRI. The purpose of the JAA is to facilitate the transition from the associate's degree at CCRI to the bachelor's degree at RIC.
