Dual Enrollment Program

The Dual Enrollment Program offers students in high schools the chance to study college level courses and receive college credit for their efforts. Students benefit by the opportunity to address the challenges of college level curricula with their high school teachers in a familiar environment at fees substantially lower than on-campus courses.

Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselor about taking our courses.

High School teachers interested in finding out how to offer a URI class at their school can contact Christine P. Dolan, christine@uri.edu, 401-277-5388.

WRITING 104 course questions/inquiries, please contact Frank Romanelli Jr, fromanelli@uri.edu, 401-277-5057.
