The Community College of Rhode Island is hosting a virtual Rhode Island Promise enrollment event on Thursday, August 13 at 6 pm.

The Rhode Island Promise scholarship provides two years free tuition for Rhode Island graduating high school seniors enrolling at CCRI full-time this fall. During the virtual event, students and parents will meet with Admissions staff, get started on their application, and get information on everything they need to become a RI Promise Scholar for this Fall. Classes for the fall semester start August 31.

CCRI is at the forefront of improving the ways community college students are prepared to advance their education and career prospects. Named America’s 2-Year College of the Year for 2019 by Education Dive, CCRI expects to have the highest three-year graduation rate of any community college in New England by 2021.
