First-Year Student Orientation 2017

First-year student orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Rhode Island College.

To assist you in making a smooth transition to Rhode Island College, all incoming first-year students are required to attend an orientation program. At orientation you will learn about the people, programs, and services that will make your college career more rewarding. A very important part of orientation is academic advisement and registration for your fall classes. You will receive academic advisement from our faculty and staff advisors, and student orientation leaders will assist you as you register for classes.

For students joining the RIC Community in the fall of 2017

Orientation sessions will close 48 hours prior to the start of each session.

First-year students are asked to attend one of the following overnight sessions:

  • SESSION 1- May 31st – June 1st CLOSED
  • SESSION 2 – June 5th – June 6th CLOSED
  • SESSION 3 – June 8th – June 9th
  • SESSION 4 – June 12th – June 13th CLOSED
  • SESSION 5 – June 15th – June 16th
  • SESSION 6 – June 19th – June 20th

We look forward to welcoming you to Rhode Island College.
