Step 2: Sign Up

If you are not currently enrolled as a student at RWU, register through our University College registration process.

You don't need to fully apply to UC to take a course as a visiting student but we do need a little bit of information to get you registered.

Fill out our visiting student enrollment form and put the course number/key from above in the appropriate field. If you're not sure which course would be best, just fill in a subject and our admission team can find a course that fits your needs.

Visiting Student Enrollment Form

If you are already a Roger Williams student, you can register for summer classes via Rogers Central.

Step 3: Watch your email

Once we have processed your course registration, you will receive an email with your ID number and RWU email. You'll need this to access your course in Bridges, our learning management system.
