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. Transfer credits are awarded in accordance with the number of credits earned at the previous institution, even if a comparable course at the receiving institution is worth a different number of credits. The additional credits may be listed separately as elective credit.
A minimum grade of “C” at URI and RIC and a minimum of grade of “C-“ at CCRI is required in order to receive specific course credit. Course work in which a “C-“ (for URI and RIC) or “D” (URI, RIC, CCRI) may transfer as elective credit.
Grade Point Average
Only credits earned at other schools will transfer; the course grades and grade points will not appear on your transcript.
All students have residency requirements to satisfy in order to receive a degree, which often includes a minimum number of credits earned within the major. Click the following links for specific information on CCRI, URI and RIC’s residency requirement.
