Welcome to RI Transfers
Information on this site aids in the efficient facilitation of transfer among the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI), Rhode Island College (RIC) and the University of Rhode Island (URI). The material included on this site is based upon the policy of the Rhode Island Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner (RIOPC) for articulation/transfer and on the agreements developed among academic department chairs, or their representatives, from the three institutions.
How Do Your Courses Transfer?
Transferability refers to the conditions under which the Institution (CCRI/RIC/URI) accepts credits from other post-secondary institutions for inclusion in the student’s record.
The three public institutions of higher education in Rhode Island each offer courses in general education for their students. Use the information in this section when you discuss your educational plans and select courses with an advisor.
Program Transfer Plans
Academic departments at the three state institutions have developed transfer plans to help you choose courses that will meet degree requirements for selected programs.
Joint Admissions Agreement
Community College of RI, Rhode Island College and University of RI have entered into a formal Joint Admissions Agreement (JAA) to facilitate students’ progression from the associate’s degree to the baccalaureate degree. To be in the JAA, you must follow one of the JAA transition plans.
Interinstitutional Exchange Program
Full-time students matriculated at URI, RIC, or CCRI may enroll for a maximum of seven credit hours of their full-time schedule per semester at one of the other public institutions at no additional expense for tuition.
