Welcome to the Rhode Island Association of Admission Officers (RIAAO) website!  I hope you find this website beneficial as you pursue the diverse opportunities in higher education available throughout the state of Rhode Island.

Founded in 1976, RIAAO is committed to providing access to higher education for high school students, adult learners, and those seeking transfer to a RI college or university. Annually, the organization sponsors a fall college fair, a spring college tour for counselors, and scholarships for RI residents, transfer students, and others living in the New England region.

On behalf of the RIAAO membership, I wish you the best of luck with your academic endeavors!


Owen Bligh, RIAAO President
