Schedule your ACCUPLACER assessment.

The ACCUPLACER is mandatory, but does not affect your acceptance into CCRI. The ACCUPLACER helps determine appropriate classes for your first semester. Go to this page for resources to help prepare to take this assessment. Call the Testing Center at 401-825-1240 to schedule your ACCUPLACER assessment.

Submit your mid-year and final high school or GED® transcripts and SAT/ACT scores if you:

  • are a graduating senior, or
  • completed your GED® after January 2014, or
  • graduated within the last three years, or
  • took the SAT/ACT in the last three years

If you don't have your transcripts, contact your high school and ask that official copies be sent to CCRI. If you did not select CCRI to receive your SAT scores, visit and select the appropriate test to send. If you are still in high school, talk to your counselor about mailing official transcripts to the Office of Enrollment Services at any CCRI campus.
