The RI Promise Scholarship Program requires students to enroll full-time. All students are strongly encouraged to take 15 credits each semester to earn the required 30 credits each year. Some students with documented disabilities may be eligible to take a reduced course load while maintaining full-time status. Students who are approved for full-time status with a reduced course load, may be exempted from the earned 30 credit per year requirement, provided they comply with all other requirements of RI Promise.
The Disability Services for Students Office will review disability documentation and if a reduced course load is warranted, a recommendation for full-time status will be forwarded to the DSS Program Director for final review and approval. Upon final approval, the Disability Services for Students Office will notify the Office of Financial Aid of the students who have been approved for this accommodation.
It is required that requests for full-time status be submitted to the Disability Services for Students Office.
