Ray Rice is no dummy ... telling TMZ Sports he's GOING BACK TO COLLEGE so he can finally get his degree.

The Baltimore Ravens running back was out in NYC last night when he revealed that he recently enrolled in online classes at Rutgers University in an effort to lock up his diploma.

The 27-year-old admits he's still a long way from donning the cap and gown ... but says he's determined to finish what he started back in 2005.

We've learned ... Rice is currently taking 4 courses:

-- Intro to Logic
-- Public Speaking
-- Employment Law
-- Diversity at work

FYI -- Rutgers recently began offering a class on Beyonce ... no word if Rice plans to take that one next semester.

Good for him....but yet again he makes enough money he could just buy Rutgers University and forget about the degree.

Good for him. So many of those players come out of college early and never finish or graduate with a creampuff major designed just for jocks that when their career ends, they have nothing to start a new life with. Those classes at least could serve him well in a business setting.
