Tuition Waivers

If you are unemployed, a senior citizen, a disabled veteran, or a member of the Rhode Island National Guard, you may be eligible for URI tuition waiver benefits. Please note that some restrictions apply.

  • Are not applicable to other standard required fees unless specifically noted.
  • May be reduced by financial aid scholarship/grant funds and/or merit-based tuition awards as noted below.
