Second Chance is a program designed to provide students with past due financial obligations a second chance to obtain a certificate or degree with the Community College of Rhode Island. Students who are granted Second Chance will have their outstanding balance deferred until graduation from CCRI at which time a “CCRI Completers Scholarship” resulting in a waiver of 100% of tuition and fees of the past due balance will be awarded provided students meet the program criteria and conditions. Please note, Bookstore obligations and/or Financial Aid obligations are not included in Second Chance. Additionally, students are responsible for the tuition and fees for the semester(s) for which they return to class.
Also, students who have their Tuition Appeal denied will automatically be considered for Second Chance as long as they meet the above criteria. Students are strongly encouraged to file a Tuition Appeal before applying for Second Chance.
