How the EEP Works
High schools enter into a partnership with Rhode Island College by identifying and offering certain courses for EEP credit. These courses are the equivalent to corresponding courses offered at RIC. Rhode Island College professors meet with high school teachers to discuss the details of their partnership. Once the course content proposed by the high school has been examined and approved, each course is given the name and number of its corresponding RIC course. Students who register for EEP courses enter into a partnership with Rhode Island College by paying a significantly reduced tuition fee for each course in which they enroll.
When students successfully complete an EEP course, their grade appears on their high school transcript and on an official RIC transcript. They may carry over the credits when they enroll at RIC, or they may transfer them to one of the many colleges or universities that accept RIC credits.
