Persons holding baccalaureate degrees from regionally accredited institutions may apply to Rhode Island College for a second undergraduate degree. At the time of application, students must have completed a baccalaureate degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (3.0 for nursing and 2.7 for radiologic technology majors). Previous college coursework must be comparable to coursework currently taught at Rhode Island College.
To apply, students should submit:
- A completed Common Application and RIC Supplement, available at www.commonapp.org, and a nonrefundable $50 application fee.
- Official transcripts from all colleges attended, showing the date their bachelor's degree was earned (transcripts for RIC graduates will be printed by the Admissions Office).
For more information about admission requirements for a second bachelor's degree, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Second-degree students follow a plan of study created with their advisor, which includes a list of program coursework and other requirements leading up to FSEHD program admission and program completion. Admission requirements may mirror undergraduate admissions; however, there will be differences.
