Welcome to University College for Academic Success

Jayne Richmond, Ph.D.,
Dean of University College for Academic Success.

Welcome to University College for Academic Success (UCAS). Our mission is to help you have the most successful undergraduate experience possible, from transitioning into college, to finding the academic support you may need to connect your major with career and life goals. We know that the search for the "right" major can be challenging so we offer many workshops and advising services to help you do that. We want you to understand what these next four years will look like so we provide you with an Academic Map that shows you which classes to take and which milestones to be aware of, to help you graduate in four years.

Our advisors are available to you every day on a walk-in basis, or by appointment with your faculty advisor through the advisement link. And should you need any help with study and learning strategies, then please visit our Academic Enhancement Center to find help in a specific course, or go to workshops on study strategies. And if you are having any other concerns and would like to talk with an advisor in a confidential manner, come see a UCAS Early Alert specialists for help. It is all free and you are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the wonderful resources we offer.

More than anything, University College for Academic Success is dedicated to being a warm and welcoming place for all students. Our mission is to Welcome, Challenge, Support and Care about students. Please come by Roosevelt Hall and meet with our peer mentors, advisors, and staff and see how we can help you to have a great transition to college and successful graduation from The University of Rhode Island.
