Planning

The URI Summer Sessions experience

Data Security Requirement: DUO 2FA Enrollment
To promote a secure online environment and to safeguard information security and privacy, starting on May 20, 2022, the University of Rhode Island will require all active and future students to enroll in DUO, a two-factor authentication (2FA) solution. This tool acts as a second verification when signing into many URI accounts, such as your URI Single Sign On (URI SSO). Verification is implemented via a push notification, SMS message, or phone call. Learn more about DUO 2FA and its installation by visiting the URI ITS website.   

NOTE: DUO is NOT needed to access e-Campus or uri.edu email.

Find the information you need to get ready for Summer Sessions.

The Academic Enhancement Center has provided a webpage that includes a number of valuable tips and information for achieving academic success as a remote or online learner. We strongly encourage you to read these helpful tips so that you will be better prepared for your class. If you are new to Brightspace, URI’s Learning Management System, please review this guide and student orientation.

URI Summer courses are the most affordable offered by the institution and can be a convenient, intensive option for catching up or getting ahead on earning academic credits. Making enrollment decisions for Summer Sessions can require advanced planning involving many factors. If you require an advanced copy of your syllabus or have a specific question about your course, please find the appropriate contact information for your instructor via the URI Faculty and Staff Directory. As you can learn below, there are unique benefits to taking summer courses online, in Kingston, or in Providence.

Course materials

You will be able to order course materials online for all URI Summer courses through the URI Campus Store website. Please visit the URI Campus Store website for further details.

The building and room location for your Kingston or Providence Campus course will be listed in e-Campus. In the days leading up to the beginning of your course, your URI Summer instructor will most likely welcome you to class with a message through Brightspace or an email to your uri.edu account. You must have access to this email address and your URI Brightspace account before your summer course begins.
