About RWU

Rhode Island may not have as many colleges as larger states, but Roger Williams University proves that quality is far more important than quantity.

RWU offers a vast array of academic resources, including the only law school in the state. For all the educational opportunities at the university, you would expect a bigger school, but Roger Williams maintains an enrollment of about 4,500 and a student-to-faculty ratio below 12:1.

Roger Williams University is comprised of several schools and colleges:

  • Feinstein College of Arts & Sciences
  • School of Architecture, Art & Historic Preservation
  • Mario J. Gabelli School of Business
  • School of Education
  • School of Engineering, Computing & Construction Management
  • School of Justice Studes
  • School of Graduate & Continuing Studies
  • School of Law

The university’s academics include about 40 majors and more than a dozen graduate degree programs. One of RWU’s many unique opportunities is the Marine Biology major, which is a rare find as an undergraduate program.

Roger Williams has fairly standard undergraduate admissions requirements, including an application and fee, high school transcript, SAT/ACT scores and a letter of recommendation. The regular admissions deadline is in early February, but RWU also has two Early Action admissions deadlines in November. Requirements vary for graduate programs.

Financial aid is available in many forms, including government programs and institutional scholarships.
