Welcome to the RIC Family!
The parents and families of our students are our greatest partners in achieving success at RIC. It's important for our parents and families to be just as informed as our students about the many resources we have available. We look forward to your important participation in our program. Follow @NewAnchors on Instagram to be up to date on all things New Student Orientation.
In addition to New Student Orientation, we are excited to invite you to join us for Family Orientation on the same date and time as your student’s orientation session. Your student will need to register you when they select their session. Student can add or edit guests in the registration up to seven days before the session.
During Family Orientation, you will join New Student Programs and all of our campus partners for a variety of informative sessions, customize your experience with special curated breakout sessions with your interests in mind, panels and more! This program is designed to welcome new students and their families to RIC, have all of your questions answered by staff, faculty, and students, and prepare you and your student for the first year at Rhode Island College.
