IYRS Students in traditional Bachelor or Associate Degree classroom setting

For students eager to connect experiential learning to a comprehensive college education, IYRS has developed agreements with area colleges where elective credits earned at IYRS may transfer to programs at:

  • Salve Regina University
  • Roger Williams University (RWU)
  • Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI)

 

Salve Regina University

Through the partnership with Salve Regina, IYRS students who wish to complete their Bachelor’s degree can transfer elective credits into any undergraduate program offered at Salve Regina’s Newport campus or at the Center for Adult Education in Warwick.

IYRS students with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher are eligible to apply for admission to Salve Regina and transfer as many as 17 elective credits from their Composites Technology Program, 17 elective credits from their Marine Systems Program, or 37 credits from their Boatbuilding and Restoration Program.

“This is a major step forward in the growing partnership between Salve Regina University and IYRS. We are profoundly grateful for the partnership and will continue to work together on a variety of other exciting initiatives,” said Dr. Scott Zeman, Salve Provost

Roger Williams University

Through the partnership with Roger Williams, the institution will award 15 credits to students who have completed the Marine Systems program or Composite Technology program. IYRS students who complete the two-year Boatbuilding & Restoration program will be granted 30 credits toward the Bachelor of General Studies or the Associate Programs at RWU. These transferred credits are applied toward elective requirements.

Students who enroll in the Bachelor of General Studies program will be encouraged to pursue the Technology Leadership and Management concentration. In order to apply the IYRS credits, students must apply and be accepted to the School of Continuing Studies at RWU. The application fee will be waived for IYRS graduates.

 “We place tremendous value on offering our students access to classrooms comprised of individuals who bring a wide variety of perspectives, life experiences and skill sets to their studies,” says Robert A. Cole, Associate Provost at Roger Williams. “Not only are we happy to offer IYRS students the chance to continue their education, but our current students will benefit greatly from the ideas offered by individuals dedicated to recapturing hands-on trade and craftsmanship skills.”
