Spring 2011 Transfer Information Sessions

Transfer Information Sessions are an excellent way for students transferring from another college or university to learn more about The University of Rhode Island in a comfortable group environment.

During the 45-minute information session, transfer students learn more about URI's academic programs and extracurricular opportunities, the transfer admissions requirements, the application process, financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Please note we do not provide pre-evaluation of transfer credit.

An optional 2:00 pm campus tour is available for any student interested. The student led walking tour lasts approximately 90 minutes. Campus food venues and the University Bookstore are open to the public.

The session will begin at 1:00 pm in the Roosevelt Hall Great Room (90 Lower College Rd. Kingston, RI 02881)
