Residency Form for Rhode Island Residents

Students living in Rhode Island must also submit a residency form to the Graduate School. Instructions and forms can be found here: http://www.uri.edu/gsadmis/Forms/CertResidency.pdf. Non-Rhode Island residents should not submit this form.

Deadlines and Required Items

Applications must be completed and submitted by the application closing date. Applications which have been started, but not completed by the closing date, will be deferred to the next Fall enrollment cycle.

A complete application requires two letters of recommendation. These letters must be received directly from the recommender and may not be supplied by the student. Recommenders may take some time to submit their letters so be sure to start as soon as practical. The online application system will send requests to your provided recommenders but we advise that you contact them in advance. It is the students responsibility to ensure that their recommenders complete the online recommendation.
