The goal of Rhode Island Ready is, much as the title suggests, to get Rhode Island HS students as ready as possible for future success in higher education, whether that ultimately be at URI or elsewhere. Students who enroll in these courses will get a head start on learning the expectations of university-level professors, while also getting an initial experience of the social aspects of life on a collegiate campus . Giving Rhode Island high school students the opportunity to earn transferable college credits at a discounted tuition ($225/credit for RI residents), explore potential majors and acclimate to the responsibilities of college-level coursework will ensure that they are as prepared as possible for life after high school. The URI Academic Colleges involved in the development of Rhode Island Ready carefully selected the instructors and courses for this first year of the program to ensure that high school students will be learning from among the best teachers the university has to offer and learning concepts that are challenging, yet ably comprehended.
The eight Rhode Island Ready courses will be open exclusively to students who will have just finished their sophomore, junior or senior year in high school when classes begin the week of July 13th. Depending on the course, classes will be in session for 3, 4 or 5 weeks. Students with a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher will be eligible to enroll in up to four Rhode Island Ready credits. Students with a cumulative GPA below 3.0 can apply with a recommendation from a high school teacher and their subsequent acceptance into the program will be at the university's discretion. Registration is open now and will remain open through Sunday, July 12th. Students can register online at http://web.uri.edu/summer/ready/
