Advising & Counseling Center
On behalf of the Community College of Rhode Island, I am delighted you have chosen
CCRI! I welcome you to our college community and hope you will make the most out
of your college experience.
During your time at CCRI, I hope you will take full advantage of all the college has
offer through its 80-plus academic programs, its many services and organized student
life. Be sure to be proactive in your education and active in college activities. Get
involved – there is something for everyone. All of these things are in place to help you
change your life and achieve your dreams.
This Student Handbook is a very important publication for you to read and reference
throughout your time at CCRI. It contains policies and procedures that may prove
helpful along the way. It outlines your responsibilities as a student and the college’s
responsibility to provide you and your peers with a safe educational environment that
is conducive to learning and personal development for all.
In case you do not have this booklet with you when you have a question, just
remember all this information can be found online at www.ccri.edu. If you have any
questions or concerns after reading this handbook, please feel free to contact my
office. We are here to assist you.
Again, thank you for choosing CCRI and I wish you great success, both in and outside
