URI Summer Sessions

The affordable way to earn credits this summer.

Policies

  • Under-enrolled courses will be cancelled prior to the beginning of each summer session (see calendar). If one of your courses is cancelled, you will be notified and given the option of substituting another course or receiving a full refund.

    The earlier you register, the fewer classes have to be cancelled. We advise students to register online in e-Campus. After cancellations, the choice of courses is limited and late registration is on a space-available basis.

  • In case of bad weather or other emergency conditions, class cancellations will be announced on radio stations WPRO (630AM), WHJJ (920AM), WADK (1540AM), WRIU (90.3FM), and WERI (99.3FM). Cancellation announcements will also be broadcast on these TV stations: WJAR (channel 10), WLNE (channel 6) and WPRI(channel 12).

    Normally the instructor will arrange a make-up class. Individual class cancellations (due to illness, emergency, etc.) and re-scheduling will be handled by the instructor of the class.

  • Summer students may attend either or both campuses and enroll in day or evening courses offered in any summer session.  Maximum course load is seven credits per summer session, including simultaneous courses offered in the alternate session. Exceptions are allowed with written permission of the appropriate academic dean.

    Students taking summer credits from another college or university to use in their degree program are advised to obtain prior approval from their academic dean before registering.

  • Pass-Fail Grading Option. This plan encourages undergraduate matriculated students to increase their intellectual breadth and discover aptitudes in new areas of knowledge. A matriculated undergraduate student above the freshman level who is not on probation may register under this plan for courses considered to be free, unattached electives by the college in which he or she is enrolled. Courses designated in the student’s curriculum as degree requirements, general education requirements, and military science courses may not be included. Non-matriculating students are not eligible for the pass-fail grading option.

    A student choosing to take a summer course under this plan must notify his or her advisor, academic dean, and the Office of Registration and Records, in writing, prior to the end of the add period of the summer session (1, 2 or 3) in which the summer course is being offered. The instructor is not informed.

    Grades will be P (pass) or F (fail). The P grade is credited toward degree requirements but not included in the grade point average. The F grade is calculated in the same manner as any other failure. A student may change from the P-F option to grade by notifying Registration and Records in writing before mid-semester.

    A student may elect no more than two P-F courses during a summer.

    Course Audit Option. When you audit, you have permission to attend a course without taking it for credit. (Auditing is not permitted in noncredit courses.) You may be admitted to a class on a space-available basis with the instructor’s consent as indicated by his or her signature on an audit authorization form, which must be filed in Enrollment Services before the end of the add period. The instructor will determine the extent to which you may participate in class activities. Your name will not appear on official class rosters, and the course will not be noted on your grade report or permanent academic record. Note: You must be enrolled in at least one other course to be permitted to audit a course without additional fees.
