The Early Enrollment Program
(EEP) at Rhode Island College
The following information on RIC’s Early Enrollment Program was found in the April 9, 2007 edition of What’s News @ Rhode Island College.
Begun in 1980, the EEP is a high school/RIC partnership that offers high school seniors and select juniors an opportunity to earn college credits while they complete their high school graduation requirements. High school instructors, who are approved by the respective college departments, teach RIC courses during the normal school day. The College is the conduit for earning course credit as there are over 75 colleges and universities from the east to the west coast involved in this partnership of accepting RIC credits. Providing a direct link between Rhode Island secondary schools and the RIC community, the EEP fosters an opportunity for collegial collaboration and has granted thousands of students college credits thus eliminating as much as one full semester of college work. RIC EEP is a member of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships, which was established in 1999 to support and promote dual enrollment programs throughout the country.
