Student Services

University College works with students to make sure you have the support and resources you need, no matter what type of student you are. Whether you take classes downtown or online, or school hasn't worked out before, UC is designed so your needs are being met. These are some ways we work with you to make sure that happens.

Advisement

As a student at RWU, you will be assigned an advisor who will meet with you on an individual basis to walk you through the registration process, discuss your program outline, ensure that you are on the road to successful program completion and explain how your program of study will help you achieve your desired career goals. All advisors have primary responsibility for students. Your advisor will also assist you in arranging learning experiences, verify and maintain your student records through the program of study and act as a liaison to instructors involved in your program as needed. Advisors have the authority to review program or degree requirements, determine credit transfer eligibility, CLEP exams, relevant military experience and training, and credit documentation.

Tutoring

Students enrolled in University College may access tutors either in-person or online. In-person tutors are available at the UC campus in Providence for math, writing, science, networking and security, legal research and writing, or other academic needs.
