GATA (Guaranteed Admission and Tuition Agreement) – CCRI

The PC/CCRI Guaranteed Admission and Tuition Agreement (GATA) program offers current CCRI students an incredible opportunity: the ability to guarantee admission and significantly reduced tuition to pursue a bachelor’s degree at Providence College through the School of Continuing Education (SCE), after they’ve graduated from CCRI.

Virtual GATA Days
Tuesday, October 27th 11 am
Thursday, December 3rd 6 pm

The benefits of the GATA program for those who qualify include:

  • Guaranteed admission to PC SCE, and no fee to apply
  • Advising services from both CCRI and SCE advisers while you complete your associate’s degree
  • A 33% discount on PC SCE tuition – and our overall cost to attend is already lower than RIC, URI and many other four-year state schools, even before the 33% discount.
  • Invitations to special activities and programs for GATA students
  • The admission offer is not binding – that means that if you are accepted into PC SCE through the program, you are not obligated to attend once you graduate from CCRI

In order to be eligible to apply to the GATA program, you must:

  • Be enrolled in a degree program at CCRI that has a transfer agreement with SCE (see below for the full list)
  • Apply to the GATA program before you earn 45 credits at CCRI
    (including transfer credit, college credits earned in high school from dual enrollment or enrichment courses, AP, or IB, or from CLEP, or military training)
  • We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible in your academic career at CCRI

To remain eligible for admission to SCE through GATA once you’ve applied and been approved, you must:

  • Consult with a CCRI adviser and an SCE GATA adviser on course selection each semester that you’re at CCRI until you’ve graduated
  • Complete your associate’s degree and the SCE articulation agreement at CCRI within five years from the date that you submit your GATA application
  • Graduate from CCRI with a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher
  • Enroll at SCE within two years of graduating from CCRI
  • The SCE tuition discount is good for five years from the date of your enrollment at SCE. To remain eligible for the discount, you must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and earn a minimum of 12 credits per academic year in the SCE. Details are below.
