Can I start an application after the deadline?

We understand that sometimes important decisions get made fast.

We consider your late applications on a case-by-case basis. We will do our best to explain your options and get you placed in the program of your choice. We can usually waive the application deadlines, but late applicants should (as always) contact the Rhode Island College Faculty of Arts and Sciences and make sure their deadlines have not passed.

See Late Application.


  • There is a $150 late fee attached to any applications submitted after the deadline.
  • KCP may not be able to arrange housing for you if the application is extremely late.
