First-Year Step 1

Step 1: Pay Deposits

Incoming first-year students must pay a $200 housing deposit. If you paid the $500 Enrollment Deposit with Housing, it was included. Please allow three business days for your payments to be processed by URI before continuing to Step 2. If you initially only submitted a $300 Enrollment Deposit, the $200 housing deposit can be paid separately. If you have any questions about the Enrollment Deposit, please contact URI Admission at

Once your Enrollment Deposit has been processed by URI, you should receive information on how to set up your Single-Sign On (SSO) account which you will need to have before moving on to Step 2.

Housing deposits are refundable upon request only through May 15th, 2024.
