Program Definition:

Second Chance is a program designed to provide students with past due financial obligations a second chance to obtain a certificate or degree with the Community College of Rhode Island. Students who are granted Second Chance will have their outstanding balance deferred until graduation from CCRI at which time a “CCRI Completers Scholarship” resulting in a waiver of 100% of tuition and fees of the past due balance will be awarded provided students meet the program criteria and conditions. Please note, Bookstore obligations and/or Financial Aid obligations are not included in Second Chance. Additionally, students are responsible for the tuition and fees for the semester(s) for which they return to class.

 

Program Criteria:

  • Student has not been enrolled at CCRI for at least 5 years, and
  • Student is currently enrolled in a degree program or certificate program (Readmit holds can be taken care of with the Office of Enrollment Services), and
  • The student has applied for financial aid (regardless of eligibility)

Also, students who have their Tuition Appeal denied will automatically be considered for Second Chance as long as they meet the above criteria.  Students are strongly encouraged to file a Tuition Appeal before applying for Second Chance.

Program Conditions:

  • The student must meet graduation requirements for their program of study within five years from the time in which they were approved for Second Chance
    • Students who do not complete 100 percent of their degree requirements within five years from the date they were awarded Second Chance will lose the deferment eligibility, and their outstanding balance will become due immediately.
