*We understand that the 2023-2024 college admission process has included significant challenges due to ongoing issues with the implementation of the new FAFSA, which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Education. At URI, we’re committed to assisting and supporting your decision-making process. We encourage students to file the FAFSA as soon as they can and to visit our Financial Aid website for helpful information and updates.

The University of Rhode Island will remain test-optional for the 2024-2025 admission cycle.
