Dear New URI Student,
Welcome to the University of Rhode Island and URI Health Services! We know this is an exciting time with much to do, but we want to inform you of some actions you must take to fulfill URI Health Services requirements. All new full-time undergraduate students must complete the following by August 11, 2017. All new full-time graduate students and all new international students must first register for classes in order to complete the following by October 1, 2017. Failure to submit this required health information by the deadline will result in a sanction on your account and you will not be able to register for classes.
Please check your URI email (your “my.uri.edu email”) for communication from URI Health Services throughout the summer. We will send you an email if you are not compliant with the requirements. If you have further questions, call Health Services at 401-874-2246.
