Rhode Island Independent College Transfer Guarantee (Rhode Island Guarantee) is a statewide effort to establish systematic transfer pathways between Rhode Island’s community colleges and four-year independent institutions. The Rhode Island Guarantee mitigates credit loss and increases student success by ensuring admission into participating independent colleges for associate degree holding students. The initiative builds upon the state’s public institution transfer policy, thereby expanding transfer options for Rhode Island’s community college students.


The Rhode Island Guarantee is currently in the development phase. Please check back later this fall for implementation documents, list of signatory institutions and a student-facing website link.
