COVID Resources

Due to the expected rise in Omicron COVID-19 cases in mid-January, Rhode Island College will begin its spring semester as scheduled on Tuesday, January 18; however, classroom instruction will be predominately remote for the first three weeks of school. After the three weeks, when the Omicron spike is expected to have subsided, RIC will return to in-person instruction in consultation with the Rhode Island Department of Health.
