What is the Dual Enrollment Program at URI?
The Dual Enrollment Program at the University of Rhode Island offers high school students the chance to study college level courses on the URI campus 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. Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselor about enrolling in a URI course.
This program is designed for motivated students, typically juniors and seniors, who seek to get a head start on college credit and who are looking to be challenged academically while in high school. Students are expected to have a 3.0 minimum high school GPA and will need to meet any URI pre-requisites for open courses.
How Do Students Register for Courses?
