Continuing Studies Application

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 registrar@rwu.edu 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 mcooney@rwu.edu.
  2. Register online when the system upgrade is complete and access is restored.

 

Please Note: This application is intended for those applicants interested in enrolling in an undergraduate degree or certificate program through the School of Continuing Studies at RWU. If you are interested in applying to a graduate program or to the full-time day program, please visit admission.rwu.edu.
