Many of the offerings in Westerly are core classes or general education courses that can help students get started in their studies before they finish their degree-specific classes at the college's four campuses in Warwick, Newport, Providence and Lincoln.
Those studying at other colleges and universities also might consider fulfilling some of their general requirements at the Westerly satellite at a lower cost, then transferring the credits to their own institutions.
CCRI offers ACCUPLACER testing as well as its popular developmental courses in reading and math at the Westerly satellite. Call 401-825-2320 for testing schedules.
