What is the Concurrent Enrollment Program at URI?
The Concurrent Enrollment Program at the University of Rhode Island offers students in high schools the chance to study college level courses 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 in a familiar environment at fees substantially lower than on-campus courses.
Who is Eligible?
Concurrent enrollment 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. To be eligible for enrollment in this URI/HS class, students should have a 3.0 minimum high school GPA or for an exception, the student must have the recommendation of the school counselor and/or school administrator and/or teacher.
What is the URI term for the HS class?
If the high school class begins any time between September 1 (or an August start date) until October 31 then the class is considered a FALL term class.
If the high school class begins any time between January 1 until March 31 then the class is considered a SPRING term class.

How Do Students Register for Courses?
In order to register for your URI/HS class you will first need to complete an online non-matriculating student form. Non-matric form.
Students will need to complete the non-matric form for each term (Fall and Spring) they enroll in a URI/HS class. This form can take up to 10 business days to complete the activation of your account so please submit it as soon as you consider enrolling for college credit. If you decide not to enroll for college credit, then your account will automatically deactivate at the end of the term and there is nothing further you need to do.
Once students receive an email that their non-matric form has been completed, please log into eCampus to begin the registration process. If you forgot your log in information, contact the URI HELP desk at 401-874- 4357 and identify yourself with your URI ID#.
In eCampus, please make sure you select the correct term for enrollment (Fall or Spring). To register into the correct class, your HS teacher will give you the class code, section, number and a permission number to enroll in the URI/HS class.
Please make sure that the correct term of enrollment (Fall or Spring) is chosen. To register yourself into the correct class, your HS teacher will give you the class number and a permission number to add the URI/HS class.
Please view this webpage for further instructions on how to do this https://web.uri.edu/enrollment/registration-help/
For SPRING enrollment, you must complete the registration process NO LATER THAN by SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2018. Failure to do so will result in no college credits earned.
If you need to withdraw your enrollment from a URI/HS class and do so by FEBRUARY 12, 2018, then the class will not show up on your transcript. If you withdraw after that date but before MARCH 5, 2018, then the class will appear on your transcript with a “W” annotated. If you do not withdraw from the class and do none of the work, then you risk receiving a grade of “NW” no work or an “F” on your transcript. All grades for college courses recorded on the transcript have no time expiration.
Upon course completion, a grade is recorded on your official URI transcript. To request a transcript for yourself and/or to send to a college/university, log into eCampus and submit an online request for a transcript be sent.
Credits will carry over when you enroll at URI, or they may transfer to one of the many colleges or universities that accept URI credits. More information regarding course transfers among the public higher education institutions can be found at ritranfers.org.
