Beginning Friday, May 1, 2015 at noon, the RWU Colleague system will be unavailable for a short time due to system upgrades. This will mean that you will not be able to register online, access your grades, request transcripts, etc. until the system is reactivated. We anticipate that the Colleague system will be available again by May 11, 2015. We will notify you when the system upgrade is complete and access is restored.

Please submit all requests to and they will be processed based upon the date of receipt.

To ensure that you are enrolled in the Summer and Fall course(s) of your choice, you are encouraged to register online for courses prior to May 1st. Students who cannot register by May 1st can take advantage of the following options:

  1. Contact your academic advisor who will complete the Summer and/or Fall registration form(s) on your behalf and document your request so SCS can manually enroll you in the course(s). Students who have questions regarding their assigned advisor can contact Mary Cooney at 401-254-4805 or
  2. Register online when the system upgrade is complete and access is restored.

Mr. Mastrobuono has been teaching and advising since 1978 at what was then Roger Williams College.  According to him, “witnessing the evolution of this school has provided a vast array of interesting and rewarding experiences.”  As an adjunct professor and advisor, many of his students and advisees have been and are adult learners, who have returned to school after years of working in various jobs and professions, after having started families, and perhaps, most recently having decided to change careers.  The feedback from so many of these adult learners has been that the School of Continuing Studies and its predecessor, The Open Program, have provided a flexible and accommodating academic program second to none.  The expansion of various academic programs to Distance Learners and online offerings, coupled with the growth of our student population, provide testimony to the academic integrity of Roger Williams University. 

“It has been and continues to be an honor to be affiliated with such a prestigious institution.”
