New England Regional Student Program

Rhode Island College participates in the Regional Student Program (RSP) administered by the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE). Through this program, New England residents who live outside of Rhode Island may enroll in specified curricula at Rhode Island College for instate tuition rates plus 50 percent. The student’s program of study must be one not offered at an institution in the student’s home state, or Rhode Island College must be closer in traveling time to the student’s legal residence than an institution offering an approved RSP program in the home state.

Students must remain in the program for which they applied or may transfer only into another NEBHE program or else they will be charged out-o-fstate tuition fees as of the date of transfer. Each semester, NEBHE program students must also request a tuition waiver from the Records Office.

Those entering Rhode Island College through the NEBHE program must meet all the standards required for admission to the college and must be accepted into a degree-granting program.

Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, from the high school guidance counselor, or from the NEBHE Web site at www.nebhe.org/programs-overview/rsp-tuition-break/overview/.
