Early Enrollment Program

Middle School

The Early Enrollment Program (EEP) is a concurrent enrollment program that offers college credit from 麻豆原创 to highly motivated high school seniors and select juniors. Students who are seeking an academic challenge and have maintained a strong academic average may qualify for participation in the EEP, contingent upon the recommendations of teachers and school counselors.

Facilitating both a Rigorous and Supportive High School Experience

The mission of the 麻豆原创 Early Enrollment Program is to provide qualified high school students the challenge and opportunity to earn transferrable college credits at an affordable price. The EEP staff works collaboratively and cooperatively with high school and college faculty to offer a rigorous postsecondary experience to students in their own supportive high school environment. The EEP is committed to maintaining the standards of excellence as established by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships of which we are a founding member.鈥

Program Overview

Concurrent enrollment means the student earns both high school credit and college credit for certain designated courses at their respective high schools. Begun in 1980, 麻豆原创's EEP has awarded college credits to thousands of students. Nearly 50 high schools in RI and nearby MA offer EEP courses to over 3000 students annually.

If you are planning to take an EEP course and have never taken one (or any course at 麻豆原创), you need to . 听If you have taken EEP courses in the past, you don't need to create an account 鈥 you are already in the system.听

Once you create your account, you will be sent your 麻豆原创 Student ID number. It is very important that you keep that ID number (we suggest keeping it on your phone)!

See the Registration information tab at the bottom of the page for additional information.

Program Standards

EEP Instructors and On-Site Coordinators (OSC) assist in maintaining high academic standards for the delivery of EEP courses approved by 麻豆原创鈥檚 Faculty Liaisons.听

The OSC and the EEP Office must be notified immediately of any change in the course or a long-term absence (more than two weeks) of an EEP Instructor (including medical leave, maternity leave, military duty, extended jury duty, resignation or any other unforeseen or necessary absence).听 The EEP Office must also be informed of the high school鈥檚 plan to cover the EEP class in question.

If the EEP office is not notified and/or the substitute is not an approved EEP instructor, the course(s) will not continue to run for EEP credit.听 The high school principal, OSC and 麻豆原创 Faculty Liaison will be notified by the EEP Office.听 The OSC should arrange to immediately inform the students in any affected class. The EEP will refer any student and parent/guardian concerns to the high school.

EEP Instructors

The process for teacher acceptance begins with the EEP Office. Interested teachers must have a minimum of three years of teaching experience and an earned master's degree in the subject area of the EEP course. Some departments have specialized or alternative requirements (i.e., appropriate business experience, specific master鈥檚 degree 15 graduate credits in the field, etc.):听Specialized or Alternative Requirements鈥.听

In all cases, the high school teacher must meet the educational standards set by the college and the academic department. Teachers should review the list of courses offered through the EEP in the section entitled EEP Courses Available. To offer a course not on the list, teachers must first contact the EEP office before submitting any materials.

It is strongly recommended that teachers submit all credentials to the EEP Office by April 1 to allow time for review by the EEP staff and then evaluation by the designated Faculty Liaison.听 The final deadline for receipt of all credentials is May 1 for consideration for fall.听 Materials listed below should be sent electronically to the EEP Office to www.ric.edu/eep听 for more efficient processing and review. If transcripts cannot be scanned and emailed, they may be mailed.听

  • Undergraduate and graduate transcripts which may be unofficial copies (麻豆原创 transcripts will be obtained for you)
  • 搁茅蝉耻尘茅
  • Proposed course syllabus: Sample syllabi are available upon request from the EEP Office. Some departments may require the same syllabus used on campus.听 Syllabi may not refer to AP or Honors even if the EEP class is combined with one of these in your high school.

Note: On-site coordinators may contact the EEP office if they need to request an exception to the deadline due to retirement, change of instructor, etc.

Guidelines for Teacher Acceptance

Once all materials are received, the EEP Office will send the file to the appropriate faculty liaison f辞谤听review.听The 麻豆原创 faculty liaison will review teacher credentials (r茅sum茅 and transcripts) to ensure that the teacher meets specific department requirements for designations as an EEP Instructor and is someone who could be eligible to serve as an adjunct faculty member at the college; review the syllabus to determine if the course meets the department guidelines and if necessary, request course revisions to meet the college's department/course standards; notify the EEP as to the approval or denial of the teacher and the course.

The EEP office will notify the course teacher and the on-site coordinator (OSC) as to the approval or denial of the teacher and/or course. Upon being accepted into the EEP, high school faculty will be designated as EEP instructors. The EEP will provide the OSC and classroom teacher with any relative information needed for the implementation of the course in the EEP.

If more than three years have elapsed since teaching in the EEP, the teacher must reapply to the program. To request reinstatement, updated materials (resume, syllabus, transcripts if applicable) must be submitted to the EEP Office.

EEP Instructor Responsibilities

  • Teach each assigned EEP class in accordance with the agreement made with the 麻豆原创 faculty liaison and use of the approved syllabus.
  • Submit a current syllabus to the EEP Office each year and update and submit current r茅sum茅 as needed.
  • Maintain communication with the high school on-site coordinator (OSC).
  • Notify the OSC of the number of sections of each EEP class/section you are teaching鈥.
  • Be accessible for at least one yearly liaison visit per EEP course (not section).
  • While student teachers may observe EEP classes, they are not allowed to teach in any EEP classes because they do not meet the requirements of being an EEP instructor.
  • All communications from an EEP instructor to the 麻豆原创/EEP Office should be copied to the school鈥檚 on-site coordinator.

NOTE: While EEP courses are transcripted as 麻豆原创 credits, grading and other academic standards for the courses (such as academic honesty, penalties for plagiarism, etc.) are determined by the individual EEP instructors and their respective high schools. EEP instructors must submit letter grades for EEP classes that conform to the grades offered at 麻豆原创 (A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+ D, D-, F).

A grade of "W" may only be submitted under the following conditions:

  1. The student is no longer registered in the EEP class (and will not be receiving high school credit)
  2. The student has moved and is no longer attending the high school
  3. Extenuating circumstances (such as long-term absence/illness) should be reported to the EEP Office for review and possible approval for a W. Students may not be awarded a W after the class has ended.

EEP Instructor Status

EEP Instructors receive a stipend for teaching EEP courses. A W-9 form must be submitted along with the grade sheets at the end of each year.

Instructors are also eligible for a campus ID card which allows the user access and/or admittance to a number of services and activities on campus. Such activities include the use of the 麻豆原创 Adams Library and its online services as well as discounts to many of the performances and events that take place at 麻豆原创.

It is important to note that an EEP instructor is neither a permanent nor a contracted employee at 麻豆原创 but an instructor in the EEP assigned on a year-to-year basis. Once a new course/teacher is approved, a "review period" will begin allowing the 麻豆原创 Faculty liaison the freedom to review the course content and/or the instructor. This review period will be in place for the first year only. Instructor appointments are subject to non-renewal at any time at the discretion of the 麻豆原创 faculty liaison with the approval of the EEP Office.

On-Site Coordinators

Each participating high school has a designated On-Site Coordinator who serves as the administrator of the EEP program at his/her high school. This person oversees the general operation of the EEP which includes registration and grading processes, fee assistance, selection of a scholarship candidate, etc. The on-site coordinator may be a teacher (including EEP instructor), school counselor, administrator or member of the administrative staff.

On-site Coordinator (OSC)听Responsibilities

The OSC's responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Serve as an advisor to the students and to the EEP instructors at the school.
  • Ensure that all EEP instructors meet the requirements of the EEP so that only qualified instructors teach EEP classes.
  • Promote the EEP by introducing new classes into the program and relating the benefits of the EEP to high school students, parents, school counselors, administrators, and any other interested parties.
  • Communicate information between the EEP office and EEP instructors in a prompt manner.
  • Verify the teachers and courses that will run in the EEP for that particular semester or year prior to EEP fall and/or spring registration.
  • Coordinate all the materials of any high school teacher who applies to become an EEP instruct辞谤听(to be sent electronically to the EEP Office).
  • 鈥婱eet EEP Office deadlines for student registrations, verification of class rosters and submission of grades.

On-site Coordinator Status

On-Site Coordinators receive a stipend for their work with the EEP. A W-9 form must be submitted along with the grade sheets at the end of each year.

On-Site Coordinators are also eligible for a campus ID card which allows the user access and/or admittance to a number of services and activities on campus. Such activities include the use of the 麻豆原创 Adams Library and its online services as well as discounts to many of the performances and events that take place at 麻豆原创.

Please note that an on-site coordinator is neither a permanent nor a contracted employee at 麻豆原创 but a facilitator in the EEP assigned on a year-to-year basis. On鈥搒ite coordinator appointments are subject to non-renewal at any time at the discretion of the EEP/麻豆原创 staff

Associate Directors

麻豆原创 Faculty Liaisons

Each academic department offering EEP course(s) must designate one or more faculty liaison(s) who will serve as the main contact to the EEP staff and the high school EEP Instructors. The liaison plays an important role in maintaining the academic quality and rigor of the program through review of courses and teachers for possible acceptance into the EEP.听 NEASC requires that teachers approved for concurrent enrollment programs (i.e., EEP) meet the standards for adjunct faculty in the department.

An academic department may require any approved EEP Instructor to use the department's syllabus for the course.

In addition, any liaison who cannot continue his/her responsibilities for any reason (retirement, load, sabbatical, etc.) should notify the EEP office and department chair.听 The office staff will contact the chair to request a replacement, whether temporary or permanent.

Faculty Liaison Responsibilities

Approval of EEP Instructors and Courses
  • Review r茅sum茅s, undergraduate and the graduate transcripts of prospective EEP Instructors forwarded to you by the EEP Office to determine if they have the qualifications set by the 麻豆原创 department.
  • Evaluate the high school course syllabus to determine if the course meets the standards of the equivalent 麻豆原创 course.听 The liaison may request that the high school teacher adjust the course content, syllabus, etc., for the course to be accepted into the program.听 Departments may require EEP Instructors to use the department's syllabus for the EEP offering
  • Inform the EEP Office about the acceptance or denial of the teacher and the course (with an explanation for any denials). The EEP Office will then notify the high school's On-Site Coordinator and the teacher.
  • Notify the EEP Office immediately if any course seems to have deviated from the criteria for which it was originally approved.听 NOTE:听 Student teachers may not provide instruction in any EEP course.听
Classroom Visits

The EEP Office does NOT require nor recommend any specific type of visit, discussion, or evaluation.听 It is recommended that the 麻豆原创 Faculty Liaison and the EEP Instructor mutually determine in what way the visitation would be beneficial to both parties. Liaisons should schedule an annual visit to each EEP Instructor (one visit per teacher, not section). .听 Visits may occur in the fall or spring semester. This visitation is required by the EEP Office in accordance with the standards of National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). Please notify the EEP Office immediately of any difficulty in scheduling a visit.

Because it may be difficult for one faculty liaison to cover the number of schools and teachers offering department courses, additional faculty (including adjuncts) may be added to assist with visits, although the department will still have one designated liaison. Names of any additional faculty assisting with visits should be sent to the EEP office.

Liaisons submit a report at the end of each semester identifying the EEP instructors who were visited, verifying the continued adherence to the approved course standards along with a brief general description or explanation of each visitation.

麻豆原创 Faculty Liaison Stipends

麻豆原创 faculty liaisons will receive an annual stipend for their responsibilities related to the review of high school courses and teachers seeking acceptance into the EEP.

In addition, faculty liaisons (and any other designated faculty making visits) receive a stipend for teacher visits (per EEP Instructor, EEP course-not section) for which they are assigned.听 Stipends are calculated instructor on teacher visits per (described under听Faculty Liaison Responsibilities). 麻豆原创 faculty liaisons (and any other designated faculty making visits)

To be paid, all liaisons/faculty must document their visits by completing and submitting to the EEP the EEP Liaison Payment/Visitation Form. A 听W-9 form must be submitted along with the grade sheets on or before June 30 each year.

EEP Assistance to Faculty Liaisons

To assist faculty liaisons, EEP will

  • Supply an accurate list of high schools, courses, teachers with their email addresses and the number of students in each course for the purpose of school visitations.
  • Forward electronic copies of updated EEP course syllabi.
  • Send the EEP e-newsletter each semester.
  • Provide all documents necessary for the EEP instructor approval process.
  • Address any issues experienced by faculty liaisons.
  • Distribute stipends promptly for all duties performed.
Professional Development Opportunities

The EEP Office is considering offering professional development opportunities for EEP Instructors and will seek input from Faculty Liaisons regarding possible content and format.

Dual Enrollment at 麻豆原创

High school students may also take Dual Enrollment courses at 麻豆原创. These courses are part of the college's regular schedule and are taught by 麻豆原创 faculty.

Program Information for Students

How it Works

Approval

High schools enter into a partnership with 麻豆原创 by identifying and offering certain courses for EEP credit. These courses are the equivalent to corresponding courses offered at 麻豆原创. 麻豆原创 professors have rigorous standards to approve high school teachers as EEP Instructors.. Once the course syllabus has been examined and approved, each course is given the name and number of its corresponding 麻豆原创 course. Students who register for EEP courses enter into a partnership with 麻豆原创 by paying a significantly reduced tuition fee for each course in which they enroll. 听Prepare RI is an initiative from Governor Raimondo providing free tuition for EEP courses to students attending RI public high schools.

When students successfully complete an EEP course, their grade appears on their high school transcript and on an official 麻豆原创 transcript. They may carry over the credits when they enroll at 麻豆原创, or they may transfer them to one of the many colleges or universities that accept 麻豆原创 credits.

Earning College Credit

The award of college credit is not dependent upon standardized testing at the end of a course, but rather on the student's performance throughout the class and the grade he/she earns. This is known as "authentic assessment." Some high schools even offer a combined EEP/AP (Advanced Placement) class, thereby offering the opportunity to earn college credit either through authentic assessment or standardized testing.

Quality and Standards

NACEP, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships, of which 麻豆原创 is a charter member, provides guidelines and standards to which concurrent enrollment programs must adhere to maintain membership. Adherence to these standards maintains credibility and excellence among programs such as the EEP and will assure its students' credit transfer to many colleges and universities in the United States.

Benefits

There are numerous academic and financial benefits to participating in the Early Enrollment Program.

Academic Benefits

In addition to providing rigorous postsecondary academic challenges to high school students in their own supportive high school environment, the EEP provides you with the opportunity to

  • Focus learning on critical thinking and writing skills
  • Earn college credits based on the grade earned in a course, not a score on a standardized test
  • Get a head start on college

Financial Benefits

As of fall 2015, Governor Raimondo鈥檚 Prepare RI Dual Enrollment Fund will provide funding for every qualifying student (who attends a RI public high school) to take college courses as part of their high school requirements at no cost to the student. While funding continues, EEP courses will be free, but students must still formally register for their EEP courses. Students interested in registering for EEP credit need to have a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 or the permission of their teacher and/or school counselor. As shown in the table below, students attending private or out of state high schools pay a significantly reduced fee for each course in which they enroll.

Because a number of participating high schools offer multiple EEP courses, students could earn up to a full year of college credit through the Early Enrollment Program鈥揳nd reduce the cost of college.

For RI and MA students not covered by Prepare RI funding, the cost (2021-2022) for EEP classes is $65 per credit. College courses are typically three or four credits.

The table below shows the savings if a student took English 113 as an EEP course instead of taking the course on campus (*based on 2021-2022 麻豆原创 tuition):

FALL 2017 ENGL 113 EEP ENGL 113 on campus Savings
RI Resident $260 $2196 $1936
Nearby MA Resident $260 $2928 $2668

Imagine the savings if more than one EEP course is taken while still in high school. Some students have saved as much as a year's college tuition.

Other benefits

After registering for EEP courses, students will be eligible to receive a 麻豆原创 Campus Card (student ID), which may be used at Adams Library to access the library's extensive online services, and for many entertainment events sponsored by the college. The cost to attend these events is the same as the cost to the full-time student population. In addition, graduating seniors who have taken EEP courses and who plan to attend 麻豆原创 may be considered for the annual EEP Scholarships.

Registration

Ready to take the challenge?

Taking an EEP course in high school offers an exciting opportunity for you!听 Students have earned up to a full semester's worth of college credits (and a few, even a whole year!) before they graduate from high school.听 This saves you time and tuition dollars 鈥 and may even spark an interest in what might become your college major.听 Designed predominantly for juniors and seniors, students should have a "B" average or better to take a course for EEP credit (or approval of their school counselor or teacher).

One or more classes at your high school have been designated as EEP courses. Teachers of those classes have been approved by faculty at 麻豆原创 to be designated as EEP Instructors.听 This means the teacher will be using a college-level course syllabus approved by a 麻豆原创 faculty member.听

All students taking that class will be held to the same high academic standards and rigor of the course.听 This means all the students in the class will be doing college-level work whether or not they formally register to earn college credit through EEP.

If you want to earn college credit through the EEP, you must follow the EEP registration process (how and when to register). If you register to earn college credit (see section on Registration), the grade you earn in the class will be posted on your high school transcript and on an official 麻豆原创 transcript.听

The award of college credit is not dependent upon standardized testing at the end of a course, but rather on the student's performance throughout the class and the grade he/she earns. This is known as "authentic assessment." Some high schools even offer a combined EEP/AP (Advanced Placement) class, thereby offering the opportunity to earn college credit either through authentic assessment or standardized testing.

It is important that students taking courses for EEP credit know that they "own" whatever grade they earn.听 And whether you choose to attend 麻豆原创 or any other college or university, college grades and credits will follow you wherever you go.

Each participating high school also has a designated on-site coordinator who serves as the administrator of the EEP program at his/her high school. This person oversees the general operation of the EEP from the high school side, which includes registration and grading processes, fee assistance, etc.听 If you have any questions about EEP offerings at your high school, use this link for a list of high school on-site coordinators:听

On Site Coordinators

High schools involved in the EEP assume the responsibility of maintaining the credibility, integrity and quality of their EEP course(s).听 If, after an EEP course has begun, it is determined that the course does not comply with the EEP and/or corresponding 麻豆原创 academic department standards, students will be withdrawn from the course and their course fee (for those required to pay) will be refunded.

Registration deadlines

EEP courses may not be added after the stated registration deadline. There are no retroactive withdrawals from any course once the course has been completed.

A student may drop an EEP course and receive a "W" (withdrawn) under the following conditions (which must be verified by the high school):

  • The student has also dropped the high school course
  • The student has moved to a different school district
  • In the case of a medical emergency requiring extensive absence from class (handled on a case-by-case basis)

Course Fees

Students attending a Rhode Island public high school

The Governor's Prepare RI fund provides funding for every qualifying student (those attending a Rhode Island public high school) to take college courses as part of their high school requirements at no cost to the student.听 EEP courses will be free (depending on continuing funding), but students must still formally register for their EEP courses.听 However, it is very important to remember that while free, students will still "own" the grade they earn. The grade will appear on an official 麻豆原创 transcript.

For Students Not Attending a RI Public High School

MA students and those attending RI private high schools pay a significantly reduced cost for each EEP course in which they enroll.听 The cost for each EEP course is $65 per credit.听 College courses are typically three or four credits.听 Note:听 Fees are subject to change.听 50% EEP financial assistance may be granted to students on free/reduced lunch who are eligible for an SAT waiver.

For example, a student taking an EEP English 113 course would pay $260, saving over $1900. 听The same course taken on the 麻豆原创 campus would cost $2196. 听MA residents would pay $2928 for the same course on campus, saving over $2600 by taking an EEP course in their high school.

Additional Benefits

EEP students are entitled to a 麻豆原创 ID at no charge which may be obtained through the Campus Card Office located in the Student Union, Room 204.听听 Identification such as a driver's license or Social Security card must be presented.听 We advise calling the Campus Card Office at 401-456-8394 for hours of operation.听 麻豆原创 IDs will become available once students are registered in their EEP classes.

A 麻豆原创 ID allows the user access and/or admittance to a number of services and activities on campus. Such activities include the use of the 麻豆原创 Adams Library and its online services as well as discounts to many of the performances and events that take place at 麻豆原创. Having a college ID may also entitle students to discounts for other retail purchases off campus (such as laptops, tablets, etc.).

Grades and Transferability of Credits

When students complete an EEP course for which they formally registered, their grade will be posted on their high school transcript and on an official 麻豆原创 transcript (same grade for both).听 Colleges and universities expect students to submit transcripts for all college courses taken whether or not the student expects or desires transfer credit.听

  1. Credits and grades are calculated as part of their grade point average (GPA) if they enroll at听麻豆原创.
  2. Credits, not grades, may be transferred to many colleges or universities throughout the United States that accept concurrent enrollment credit. Transfer credit policy differs among colleges and universities.听 It is the student's responsibility to check the transferability of credit.听 See the Transfer of College Credit section on the EEP webpage for a partial listing of colleges/universities which have accepted 麻豆原创 EEP credits.
  3. Most colleges will not accept credit for coursework when a student earns a grade below C.听 Students should work hard to earn a grade of at least C.听 Lower grades may affect a student's offer of admission to college.

Transcript Requests

Students must submit an official 麻豆原创 transcript to any college to which they apply whether or not they desire or expect transfer credit (except those students who plan to attend 麻豆原创).麻豆原创 should be listed on college applications as the institution from which the student will (or has) earned college credit.听 This not only enhances the student's application, but is also helpful for advisement purposes if the student attends a college orientation prior to EEP grades being posted.

Colleges and universities expect an official transcript before the start of the student's first semester. EEP grades are normally processed and posted on 麻豆原创 transcripts by July. Transcripts will be sent as soon as they are available. EEP students who choose to attend 麻豆原创 need not request a transcript as long as they list the college on their application for admission.

Students request a transcript on line . Be sure to have the complete address (including office or department) for the college to where you want the official transcript sent.听

EEP Scholarships

Each year, the Early Enrollment Program awards a limited number of scholarships to outstanding EEP听students who will be attending 麻豆原创 and who have been nominated for the scholarship by the on-site coordinator at their high school.

In the spring, on-site coordinators will receive a letter from the EEP Office which will include all of the information necessary to initiate the scholarship application process in their schools. 听The EEP Scholarships are open to all students who have enrolled in at least one EEP course during their tenure at their respective high schools.听 Each school will hold its own review of scholarship applicants and submit one applicant to the Early Enrollment Program office.

The student must attend 麻豆原创 for the scholarship to be awarded. 听Each scholarship is renewable for three additional years provided the student maintains a 3.0 cumulative grade point average at the end of each academic year.听

Scholarships will be announced in May, and letters will be sent to the recipients of the scholarship, the on-site coordinators, and the school principals. In addition, letters announcing the winners will be sent to all on-site coordinators. 听

EEP Courses

EEP credits have been awarded specific course credit, elective credit and/or exemption from required courses depending on the college or university the student attends. No matter how the credit is applied, it reduces the number of credits the student needs to graduate, and lessens the financial burden on families.听Colleges and universities may apply the credit in different ways.

For students who decide to attend 麻豆原创, all EEP credits count towards graduation and nearly 90% of the courses satisfy a Gen Ed requirement or count in one or more majors or minors. Check the first column below to see how your EEP courses are applied at 麻豆原创.

Transfer of College Credits

Once the student completes a high school EEP course, the grade earned becomes part of an official 麻豆原创 transcript. Students may use the credits at 麻豆原创 or transfer them to a large number of colleges and universities across the U.S.

There are hundreds of public and private 4-year institutions that accept EEP credits. A partial list appears below. EEP credits have been awarded specific course credit, elective credit and/or exemption from required courses. No matter how the credit is applied, it reduces the number of credits the student needs to graduate, and lessens the financial burden on families. It is standard procedure that transfer credits do not have grade designations, but are noted as credits earned. While a minimum transfer grade is generally a "C", some colleges will expect a "B-" or better.

It is the student's responsibility to list EEP credits earned on college applications and to send an听official 麻豆原创 transcript, to any college or university to which they apply. The college will supply a transcript for those students applying to 麻豆原创. Students may also wish to keep a copy of their EEP course syllabus and samples of their coursework if proof is required of the course's high academic standards.
