Fourth Annual "Get A Passport & Travel" Workshop - International Education Week 2014

As part of International Education Week 2014, the Boston Passport Agency and United States Postal Service (USPS) will have staff on the University of Rhode Island Kingston campus on Friday, November 21, 2014 between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM in Atrium 2 of the Memorial Union to process both new and renewal passport applications. This is an opportunity for URI students, staff, and faculty to apply for or renew their passports quickly and conveniently.

To assist students with the expense associated with applying for a first-time passport, the URI Office of International Education is offering to subsidize the passport application fee ($110 value) for the first 50 URI full-time, U.S. undergraduate students who complete an application, provide proof of attendance at an International Education Week event, and bring all required documents for their passport to the workshop. Please note, applicants will still need to pay a $25 execution fee to the USPS.

To be considered for the subsidized passport, students must complete and submit an application form to the Office of International Education by 3:30 p.m. on November 10, 12, 13, or 14, 2014. No late submissions will be accepted.

There are also many other sponsored events throughout the week of November 17-21, to which all are encouraged to attend.
