1. Can students from other schools enroll?

Yes. Students who do not attend URI full-time, but want to take URI Summer courses to earn credits that can be transferred to another institution of higher education or simply for personal enrichment should follow the registration steps listed within the “New Students” tab on our How to Register webpage. These registration steps are also the ones to be followed by high school students and students who once attended URI full-time but no longer do.

3. How do URI Summer credits get transferred?

Make sure your student’s full-time university or college will accept the transfer credits she or he earns by passing URI Summer courses. Your student’s home institution will most likely have an online database of courses already accepted for transfer credit from outside institutions (as a reference, you can view URI’s version of this database here) and a version of a “transfer credit form”, or something similarly named, that your student will need to complete and submit to his/her school if he/she plans to take a URI course that has not been previously accepted for transfer credit by the school. Completing such a form often requires a course syllabus and/or URI course description.  You can search all official URI Course Descriptions here. For a copy of a URI syllabus, email the instructor listed for the class. Students can look up the appropriate instructor email address on the URI Summer Course Listing.

Once grades have been posted for URI Summer classes, students may request to have official URI transcripts sent to other institutions of higher education. The mailing of transcripts is free of charge and students may make these requests manually via their URI e-Campus account. Please follow complete instructions here.

8. How do online courses work?

Many URI Summer online courses are administered entirely through URI Sakai.

MUS courses can be a notable exception and are alternatively administered via connect4education.

Students taking an online course for the first time this summer are highly encouraged to complete the URI Online Learning Orientation prior to the start of the course.

URI Summer online courses can be administered synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the curriculum and the instructor. Summer online courses may have daily and/or weekly assignment deadlines by which students must abide. It is essential that students be ready to start participation in an online summer class on the first day of the session in which it is offered. A student who has questions about a specific online course should email the overseeing instructor immediately.

A student who has specific questions about his/her URI Sakai account should immediately contact the URI IT Service Desk at 401-874-4357 or helpdesk@uri.edu.

9. Will instructor(s) contact students before summer course(s) begin?

In the days leading up to the beginning of your student’s course(s), their URI Summer instructor(s) will most likely welcome them to class with a message through Sakai or an email to their my.uri.edu account. It is imperative that your student have access to this email address and their URI Sakai account before summer courses begin. A student who has specific questions about his/her URI Sakai account or my.uri.edu email address should immediately contact the URI IT Service Desk at 401-874-4357 or helpdesk@uri.edu.

10. How does my son or daughter contact their instructor?

You will be able to order course materials online for all URI Summer courses through the URI Campus Store website starting the morning of Monday, May 16th.

12. How do students drop a summer course no longer needed?
