Rhode Island Promise at CCRI

June 16, 2017

You’ve probably heard a lot about the Rhode Island Promise program, which will allow all Rhode Island high school graduates to pursue an associate degree at CCRI, and you don't have to pay tuition regardless of your family's income.

This is outstanding news for future CCRI students. While we wait for the final plan to pass, here’s everything you need to know about Rhode Island Promise (and what you can do to get ready).

You qualify for Rhode Island Promise if you are:

  • Rhode Island resident.
  • 2017 high school graduate (public, private or homeschooled) or GED recipient younger than 19 years old.

To maintain the Rhode Island Promise scholarship for the full two years, you must:

  • Take 15 credits per semester.
  • Maintain at least a 2.5 GPA.
  • Earn 30 credits each year (fall, spring, and summer semesters included).
  • Enroll each semester for two years. Fall and spring are required; summer is optional.

And you can start now!

Apply to CCRI immediately.

Fill out the FAFSA. If you have any problems, don't hesitate to contact our Financial Aid office or CCRI’s Educational Opportunities Center for help.
