College Unbound @ RWU opened in 2009 as a partnership with Roger Williams University.
Since 2011, this program has been centered around an off-campus, non-residential program tailored to adult learners. College Unbound @ RWU students who complete all requirements for the degree receive a Bachelor’s of General Studies in approximately four years — or less if they enroll with credits from other institutions.
Most students range in age from their mid-20s to their mid-60s. They are interested in working independently but with personalized support and flexible scheduling.
Many students in this program use their current job as their professional learning experience. Others hope to transition to a new career.
Many College Unbound @ RWU students transfer credits from previous college work or apply for prior learning credits that recognize work or life experience relevant to their learning goals.
