In-Person Campus Visits

RIC Tour Guides

Sign Up for an In-Person Visit

Rhode Island College safely welcomes prospective students and their families to campus this fall. Please join us for an in-person information session with an Admissions Counselor followed by a campus tour with our Admissions Ambassadors to learn more about our academic programs, student life and the admissions process. All guests must be pre-screened, wear a mask during their visit, and be fully vaccinated. In addition, the Prospective Student Center is dedicated to offering a personal and safe campus visit experience. Campus tours will not exceed 10 guests and participants must maintain 3 feet of social distance.

Fall tours will begin on September 8th and end on December 17th. 

In-person visits are available on the following days/times:

  • Monday at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm
  • Wednesday at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm
  • Friday at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm

In order to prepare to safely show our campus: 

  • The college has established a robust cleaning and disinfecting protocol in accordance with CDC guidelines.  
  • The college has identified high-touch locations across campus that will be cleaned and disinfected at increased levels.  
  • The college has adopted the visual-verbal screening process to screen employees and students entering a building or workspace.  
  • The Visual Verbal Screening Tool will be used for self-reported symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19 and other COVID-19 risk factors. 

Here are a few basics for our guided tour policies: 

  1. To receive a guided tour, you must be pre-registered. 
  2. All visitors in your party must be included in the total number of guests when you register.  If they are not included and we are at capacity, they will not be able to join you on the tour. 
  3. All visitors must complete the COVID-19 Screening Tool the day before you visit and will be asked the questions again by an Anchor Health Ambassador the morning of the tour before you check-in. If you have any symptoms you are not permitted to come to campus. Additionally, there will be a temperature check before entering our athletic facility. 
  4. Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases as a result of the Delta variant in RI and around the country, the RI Department of Administration has issued a mask mandate for all state offices and facilities. All Rhode Island College visitors must wear a face covering regardless of vaccination status.  
  5. Tours leave right at the scheduled time. We are unable to hold a tour if you are late but will do our best to catch you up to the tour. If you are unable to make your designated tour, we are more than happy to reschedule.  

More information about safety policies and protocols will be sent in your confirmation email.   

Please do not show up for a guided tour without registration. Additionally, check out our virtual tour options that are both live and on our YouTube Channel.
