If you have earned college credits while still enrolled in high school, or in a "dual enrollment" program, please refer to information for "freshmen with advanced standing."

Transfer applicants are required to use the Transfer Common Application and submit official transcripts, but they are not required to submit the "School Forms."
A completed application includes:
When you apply, you will receive a confirmation from the Common Application that your application has been submitted. URI will then send a letter acknowledging that we have received your application and telling you how to check the status of your application online. Due to very high mail volume, it may take up to three weeks for paper and electronic documents to be attached to your application. Once they are attached, they will reflect the actual date that they were received. If your "to do" list reflects that we have not received something, we may have in fact received it, but have not yet attached it to your file. We appreciate your patience at this very busy time of year. Please continue to check your status regularly.
If you are seeking readmission to degree candidacy at the University or have received a degree from URI, do not fill out this application. Contact Enrollment Services for the proper forms to be completed (or call 401-277-5454)

There are several housing options for students who wish to transfer to URI. These options include limited on-campus University housing in residence halls managed by Housing and Residential Life (HRL), on-campus housing through our Fraternity Managers Association, and off-campus housing in the community (many of these houses are very close to some of Rhode Island's most beautiful beaches!).
Admitted transfer students who would like to live on campus in the University- owned residence halls should pay their enrollment and housing deposits as soon as possible after being admitted, and then complete the housing application, which is available on the Department of Housing and Residential Life web site. Students will be notified about residence hall housing mid-summer.
If we are not able to offer you housing in University residence halls, or if we cannot provide an answer about residence hall housing by the time you need the information, the housing deposit will be refunded. If your enrollment at URI is contingent upon receiving housing in University residence halls, the enrollment deposit will also be refunded.
Please see the attached brochure for other housing options.
We offer 30-minute information sessions that include an overview of admission guidelines and procedures, housing options, and scholarships. Your meeting will not include an evaluation of previously earned credits or in-depth financial aid information.
Please note: admission decisions are based on academic performance, course selection, your essay, and your letter of recommendation. We do not offer interviews as part of the admission process.

Danielle Henderson '11
Hometown: Warwick, NY
Major: Gender and Women's Studies
It started out as a way for Danielle Henderson '11, now a writer and graduate student in the Gender and Women's Studies program at the University of Wisconsin, to remember the fine points of feminist theory. Besides that, she thought it would be fun.
