Call the Admissions Office at RIC (456-8234) to request a
catalog and an application (catalogs and applications are also
available through the Advising and Counseling Centers at CCRI).
Applications are due by June 1 for the fall semester and by
November 15 for the spring semester. To apply, you must submit
the following: an application form with the $50 fee and an
official transcript from all colleges/universities attended
where you attempted or earned college credits, whether or not
you expect or desire credit for such work.
Even though interviews are not required, they can be arranged
by contacting the RIC Admissions Office. A representative from
RIC holds information sessions for prospective transfer students
each semester at all three CCRI campuses. Check the Advising
and Counseling Centers at CCRI or the RIC Admissions Office
for dates and times.
At the time of acceptance, the Admissions Office will inform
you of the approximate number of transfer credits you will
be given. You will receive the final credit evaluation -- listing
total credits with RIC course designations -- prior to registration.
A one-day orientation program for all new transfer students
is essential for making a successful transition to Rhode Island
College . At orientation you will meet with other new students,
become more familiar with the RIC services and facilities,
speak with a faculty advisor, and register for courses. After
you have been accepted and paid your enrollment deposit, you
will receive notification of the date and time of your orientation
session from the Office of Academic Support and Information
Questions concerning the official transfer credit evaluation
or the transfer admissions process at Rhode Island College
should be directed to Deb Suggs in the Office of Admissions
at 456-8234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may transfer up to 90 credits. However,
in order to graduate with a degree from RIC, you must complete
a minimum of 120 credits; a minimum of 45 credits must be earned
at RIC (a minimum of 15 credits must be in the major, 12 of
which must be at the 300 or 400 level). Credits transferred
may not all apply to the fulfillment of your major, minor,
or general education requirements. Consult the appropriate
section(s) of RIC’s catalog for specifics.
Courses in which a grade of D was received
are transferable only as elective credit unless earned in a
course in the degree program, in which case an academic department
may require that the course be repeated and a higher grade
earned. Technical/career courses and courses in which Pass or Credit grades
are earned are evaluated for transfer on an individual basis.
