Transfer Orientation

Welcome to Rhode Island College!


In order to introduce you to Rhode Island College and assist you in making a smooth transition to college life, all incoming students are required to attend the August 2014 new student orientation program. We have scheduled eight orientation cycles over three days to suit your schedule.

The orientation program will be relatively brief - about three hours. It is essential for understanding policies, procedures, and requirements of the college. You will be able to review your transfer credit evaluations, meet with faculty and staff advisors, register for classes, become acquainted with the campus, and learn more about the programs and services offered at Rhode Island College.

We are happy that you have chosen to join us. We will make every effort to see that your first experience as a student at Rhode Island College is an informative and enjoyable one.

Letters inviting students to August 2014 orientation will be sent in mid-July with instructions on how to register for your orientation date and time. For your information, the orientation sessions will be as follows:

August 18, 2014 8:00 a.m. (FRESHMEN ONLY)
