School Description

Rhode Island College (RIC) was founded in 1854 as the Rhode Island State Normal School. At the time, the College provided teacher preparation programs to young people from Rhode Island. In 1898, the institution evolved into a teachers’ college, as was called the Rhode Island College of Education. In 1959 the College moved to its new and present location and was re-named once again as Rhode Island College.

Today RIC serves approximately 9,000 students on and off its campus. RIC is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and additionally has accreditations for several of its programs from the Council on Social Work Education, National Association of Schools of Art and Design, National Association of Schools of Music, National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

        Amazing Education

        I graduated from RIC in 1995 with a BA in Biology. This degree was the foundation for my beautiful future. I went on to study at The NewEngland College of Optometry in Boston and received my Doctor of Optometry degree in 1999. RIC is a wonderful college and I would highly recommend it to any aspiring student.

        RIC Experience

        Went as an older student (25 years old) full time and always felt that the faculty and staff had so much to offer. Also worked on campus (library) and have some treasured memories from that as well. Never got over the "tucked away on a hill" feel of the campus. Cozy and quiet, you would never guess the city was minutes away.

        RIC Experience

        Great instructors and campus size. A great education for the price and the classes were top notch. I had the pleasure of working with some talented people during my time there. Very thankful for the experience.
