Partnerships with Other Colleges

Are You Currently a CCRI Student?
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.
