CCRI to RIC: 2+2 Program Transfer Plans and Transfer Minors
2+2 Program Transfer Plans
Each of the Rhode Island College majors listed below has a 2+2 plan mapping out your coursework for your first two years to complete your associate degree at CCRI. You will get a head start on your major and be able to complete almost all of RIC’s Gen Ed requirements (for most majors, just the Connections course remaining to take at RIC). Most plans also include the option to begin a related minor.
In addition to a course checklist for your first two years at CCRI, you’ll have an Academic Rhode Map
outlining your last two years (semesters 5 – 8) at Rhode Island College, enabling you to finish your bachelor’s degree in 4 years (for full time students). We know that time and cost for your degree is important and want you to have the most efficient route towards completion of your bachelor’s degree.
Additional plans are being developed.

Transfer Minors: First-in-the-Nation Initiative
Rhode Island College’s transfer minor policy is the first-in-the-nation to recognize your knowledge in a specialized area for which we do not currently offer a major or minor.
If you completed an associate degree at CCRI in one of the programs below, you are eligible for a transfer minor to be posted on your RIC transcript.
Transfer minors have the same name as the corresponding associate degree except for the transfer minor in accounting, which is called Financial Advisory Services, Required courses for the minor are listed in parentheses after each associate degree program.

While minors are not required at Rhode Island College, completing a minor can add value to your undergraduate degree for internships, employment or graduate school, giving you a “stackable credential.” And, a minor can be paired with any major at Rhode Island College. Additional information on transfer minor policy can be found here.
Transfer Minor Requirements
- Transfer minors consist of 18-24 credits (comparable to RIC minors)
- Students cannot double count credits from a transfer minor towards an existing RIC minor, but as with RIC minors, some courses may be double counted towards a major.
- All coursework for the transfer minor must be completed at the community college before matriculating as a new transfer or a readmit at RIC.
- The designation of the transfer minor will appear on the student’s transcript under Academic Program History (i.e., as Plan: Transfer Minor in Law Enforcement, Plan: Transfer Minor in Paralegal Studies, etc.
- A transfer minor may include some courses which can be articulated at RIC.
- Should the college ever develop its own minor in the same field, the transfer minor will be discontinued from that point forward.
- New transfers and those already enrolled at RIC, if eligible, may have the transfer minor posted.
Any elective credits in the transfer minor (currently listed as “XFER” on the RIC transcript) will be repackaged as a TMIN course with the appropriate number of credits.
