RISD deeply values the diversity of backgrounds, cultures and experiences that can be found on campus. Our learning community is made up of students, faculty and staff from over 60 nations.
For newly enrolled international students, RISD's Office of International Student Services (OISS) offers support and services to assist with immigration compliance, cultural and language adjustment and navigating required procedures in the US. You can also check out the OISS' Coming to RISD guide for general information regarding visas and relocation as well as up-to-date information on U.S. travel restrictions.
Graduate program directors are the first point of contact for any program-specific questions (regarding materials, curriculum, etc.). For general inquiries about enrollment, email the Admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
