New First Time Student

What is a first-time student?

A first-time student is anyone who has never attended a higher education institution as a college student and will be attending CCRI for the first time. This includes students who have earned dual enrollment credits while in high school, and plan to attend CCRI after graduating from high school or earning a GED. If you're a high school student interested in taking college classes, visit our Dual Enrollment page.
