Registration Dates

All students register via the Web at assigned dates and times. Students may register at the beginning of their scheduled appointment time. Web registration is accessed through MyRIC using your Network User ID and Password. Your registration time is in your MyRIC account. Hearing/visually impaired students should contact TTY/TDD via RI Relay at 1-800-745-5555 for assistance with registration.

The registration system is available from 7:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. daily. Be sure to avoid course meeting time conflicts. You may not register for more than one section of a course.

If you register for a course and do not withdraw from the course before the end of the Add/Drop Period, you will be financially responsible for the course. You must pay even if you do not attend.
