How to Register

New Students

If this is your first time registering for a course at the University of Rhode Island, welcome! You are five easy steps away from taking advantage of the reduced tuition rates of URI Summer:

  1. Download and complete the Non-Degree Application Form. Submit your completed form to URI Enrollment Services by following the instructions listed on the second page of the form.
  2. Within 3 business days of the submission of your application form, you will receive your URI Student ID# from a representative of the University.  You will need this to register for eCampus, URI’s online module that allows students to organize all the many academic facets of student life (course registration, tuition payments, keeping track of final grades, etc).  To create your eCampus account, visit http://web.uri.edu/ecampus/ and click on the “First Time Users Register Here” link on the left-hand side of your screen.  You will create a username and password.
  3. Use the “Class Search” function on your eCampus homepage to find URI Summer classes that are perfect for you.  You will be able to register for any Summer Sessions course marked with a green circle.  A tutorial for the “Class Search” function can be found here: http://www.uri.edu/es/tutorials/UsingClassSearch.html
  4. Setup your my.uri.edu email account.  To access your my.uri.edu email account, visit http://www.uri.edu/news/myuri/ after completing your eCampus registration and click on the “LOG IN TO MY.URI.EDU” button.  The username you select for eCampus will also serve as your URI email User ID.  Your initial email password will be your birth date (2 numerical digits for month, 2 numerical digits for day and 4 numerical digits for year — with no spaces or punctuation in between).  It is recommended that you change this password after your initial login.  URI Enrollment Services will use your my.uri.edu email to notify you when your bill has been generated on eCampus.  Your professor will use this email address to alert you of important class information and URI administrators will use it for URI Summer notifications.
  5. Make sure your full-time university or college will accept the credits you earn through URI.  Your school will have some sort of “transfer credit form” that you will need to complete and submit.  Many schools require proof of equivalency before accepting credits from another university.  This often times requires a URI course description.  You can search all official URI Course Descriptions here: http://web.uri.edu/catalog/course-descriptions/

Having trouble registering for a URI Summer Sessions course? You can access an FAQ for eCampus, URI email and Sakai (another online system often used by URI faculty during summer courses) here: web.uri.edu/ecampus/files/userid_and_password_document_october_18_2004.pdf or contact John Olerio at 401-874-2540 or jolerio@uri.edu

For all other Alternate Session courses, you may make changes Online up to, but not including, the first day of class. After an Alternate Session class has begun, all changes require permission of the instructor.

Directed Studies and Thesis/Dissertation

Independent Study courses (such as Directed Readings, Special Problems, Thesis and Dissertation Research) under the guidance of a faculty member are offered during the summer sessions as needed. Students whose program of study requires enrollment in directed studies courses must make prior arrangements with the directing professor.

Application forms for directed studies are available at both Kingston and Providence campuses.

Note: Because all directed studies courses in the summer involve individual arrangements, registration should be completed as soon as possible. No directed studies registrations will be accepted after the ADD period.
