Tuition and Fees


  • Tuition rates depend upon the level of the course: undergraduate-level courses are those numbered 100-499; graduate courses are numbered 500 and above.

    Tuition for Rhode Island residents is $225 per undergraduate credit and $303 per graduate credit. Out-of-state students pay $408 per undergraduate credit and $462 per graduate credit. Fees for students with Regional status are $394 per undergraduate credit and $454 per graduate credit.

    All 2017 URI Summer Sessions e-Bills will be posted to e-Campus on Friday, May 19th and will be payable in all the same ways a fall or spring e-Bill can be paid. Students will be notified via email addresses as soon as e-Bills have been generated on e-Campus. Each email notification will contain the date by which 2017 Summer e-Bills will need to be paid in full, which will be sometime during mid-June. Email notifications about unpaid or new 2017 Summer e-Bill balances will again be sent out toward the end of June and once more in July. Students who still have unpaid Summer 2017 balances as of Tuesday, August 1st will be assessed late payment fees. You can learn more about URI e-Bills here
