How much does it cost? Will I get financial aid and is there an application fee?
For most of our partner institutions, URI students have the option of paying URI's instate tuition and fees (even out of state URI students) -- This is called Plan B. If this is not an option URI students can pay the in-state tuition and fees of the host campus -- Plan A. For detailed information about Plan A and B billing, complete the General Information Session and visit the Billing and Policies link below.
An eligible student is awarded financial aid from the campus at which pay he/she pays tuition and fees (Plan B -- URI awards federal aid and Plan A -- the host campus awards federal aid). For detailed information selection Billing and Policies link below.
