Advisement & Registration
You're almost ready to register for classes! However, before you register, you'll need to contact your program director for advisement on course selection. Please use the graduate program director list below to find contact information for your Program Director and set up a time to meet regarding advisement. Please note that some graduate program directors prefer that new graduate students in their respective programs register for courses at Orientation (held in late August for Fall term only). Please check with your program director for the most appropriate time to register.
After you have contacted your program director, you can register online for your courses.
Student course registration is available online on Roger Central at http://rogercentral.rwu.edu. Course registration for the summer and fall terms typically opens in March each year and registration for the spring term opens in October.
To access Roger Central, visit rogercentral.rwu.edu and use the RWU login information provided to you. If you have not received your RWU login information, please contact the Office of Graduate Admission at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-254-6200. You must submit your enrollment commitment deposit to receive your login credentials.
Please use the Academic Calendar for important dates and key timelines for your academic studies at RWU.
Accessing Online Courses
Once you've registered for your course(s), it takes up to 2 days for you to be added to your course(s) in Bridges, our online course management system. All fully online courses at RWU will be taught in Bridges. Faculty who teach directed seminars or traditional on-campus courses also have the option of using Bridges to supplement their courses. It is best to check Bridges at http://bridges.rwu.edu and click on the My Sites tab to access your course(s) by term to determine if your faculty member is using this system. Also be aware that faculty can choose when to make their courses available to students. If they are still working on their courses, you may not see them listed when you log in. When in doubt, you can send your instructor an email to inquire when the course will be available to you. When you are granted access, you can access your course(s) by clicking on the link below. This link is always available by browsing to the main RWU website and clicking on "Current Students".
Be sure to check your Bridges access as soon as possible. If you cannot access your course(s) after 2 days, contact the Help Desk at email@example.com or (401) 254-5200.
