There’s so much to explore before choosing and settling into your new college home. It can be a life-changing adventure, just like a road trip to an unfamiliar place. That’s why we call it your Rhode to Becoming a Ram. And we’re here to help you map it all out.

FAFSA Progress Update
URI has started to receive FAFSA data from the U.S. Department of Education and we are working hard to prepare financial aid awards. To assist first-year admitted students (Fall 2024 entry) in their decision process, URI will be extending its deposit deadline to May 15, 2024.

Land Acknowledgment
The University of Rhode Island occupies the traditional stomping ground of the Narragansett Nation and the Niantic People. We honor and respect the enduring and continuing relationship between the Indigenous people and this land by teaching and learning more about their history and present-day communities, and by becoming stewards of the land we, too, inhabit.
