Tuition/Late Registration & Refund Policies

See the Office of the Bursar for information on tuition and refund policies.

Textbook Information

In compliance with the federal Higher Education Act (2008), a listing of required and/or optional textbooks for courses is made available via the Providence College Bookstore. Faculty are asked to submit textbook information to the College bookstore as materials are identified and retain the right to change book orders at any time. If textbooks are not listed two weeks prior to the start of classes, students should contact the instructor directly. Students are free to choose where they purchase course materials. As good practice, students should carefully evaluate all suppliers of course materials, including their refund policies and shipping charges. It is recommended that students check the Providence College bookstore website prior to the start of the semester for any changes to course materials.

Mandatory Immunization Form

Providence College policy and Rhode Island State law require the College to keep a medical immunization form on file for all full-time students (9 or more credits). Proof of immunity is required prior to registration. Please complete the Immunization Form and return to the Student Health Center, Lower Bedford Hall, 1 Cunningham Square, Providence, Rhode Island 02918.

Technology Resources Log-In Information

Log-in credentials for CyberFriar, computer access for the labs and library, college email, and SAKAI are issued through the Office of the Registrar. Please contact us for log-in information or PIN resets.

CyberFriar

Our online student information system that allows you to view semester course offerings and course descriptions, register online, make payments, check grades, request official transcripts, print unofficial transcripts, and review your financial account.

SAKAI

Sakai is a web-based course management and collaboration portal that enables instructors to manage course materials and to communicate with students. SAKAI functions both as a complement to traditional courses and as a site for distance learning. If you encounter technical difficulties in accessing SAKAI, end an email to sakaihelp@providence.edu from the email address on file with the college.

Providence College Photo ID

Matriculating graduate students are issued a Providence College ID Card which allows students to check books out from the library, add money to their PC Cash account and their card to spend money on campus at locations such as PC Perk, C-Store, Jazzman’s Café, vending, laser printers, and copy machines. It also acts as on-campus identification. Students must go to the PC Card Office in Harkins Hall 401, between the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM to have their photo taken. The first card is free of charge. There is a fee for a replacement card.

Parking on Campus

All Graduate, Adjunct and SCE students are eligible to park on campus at no cost but only after applying for and receiving a parking sticker. These stickers will be valid for the academic school year. To apply for a parking pass, you may do so online through the Department of Public Safety.
