The Course Availability option on this Community College of Rhode Island web site displays the current, up-to-date, available courses for a selected term. This information can be reviewed either by pure subject area or by campus, time, day, and subject. If you look through the information by subject only, the following guidelines should help you to understand where the class that you select is being held:

  1. The Knight Campus is also known as the Warwick Campus.
    The Flanagan Campus is also known as the Lincoln Campus.
    The Liston Campus is also known as the Providence Campus.
    The Newport County Campus is also known as the Newport Campus.
  2. Classes whose section number falls between 001 and 149 meet on the Knight Campus. For example COMI 1100 101 would be an Introduction to Computers course held at the Knight Campus in Warwick.
  3. Classes whose section number falls between 150 and 300 meet on the Flanagan Campus. For example COMI 1100 201 would be an Introduction to Computers course held at the Flanagan Campus in Lincoln.
  4. Classes whose section number falls between 301 and 340 meet on the Liston Campus. For example COMI 1100 301 would be an Introduction to Computers course held at the Liston Campus in Providence.
