New CCRI Student

This is a secure online application.

A new student is someone who has never previously attended CCRI. The online application process requires that you submit your social security number as part of the application process. A $20 non-refundable application fee is required for all new applications.

You will create a login ID and PIN to initiate your application and if needed return to an incomplete application. However, it is advisable to complete the application in one session.

Note: A student who previously attended the college through Center for Workforce and Community Education (CWCE) only, will need to submit a new application.

Returning CCRI student

A returning CCRI student is someone who has graduated from the college, participated in a dual enrollment program, stopped attending CCRI for at least one semester, previously accepted and never attended, and would like to enroll in classes.

Note: A student who is a CCRI graduate must change their major before enrolling in classes. A returning student who previously attended the college in a non-degree (unclassified) status, including high school dual enrollment students, may return as a non-degree student or change their major before enrolling in classes.

Please look for the Returning Student Readmission into Degree/Certificate Program link in the For Students tab once you gain access to your MyCCRI account.
