Reserve your space

First things first: please complete the following steps by the posted deadlines in order to enroll. And stay tuned over the spring and summer for additional information about events and forms to fill out.

by April 15

Submit a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $500 to reserve your space (this is applied to your first tuition bill). To pay your deposit by credit card or to authorize a bank transfer from your checking or savings account, please use the link below to go to our secure online site. You’ll need to indicate your name, RISD student ID number and the semester you will enroll (as indicated in your acceptance letter). All future tuition bills and other fees can be paid at this site as well. If you are unable to submit payment online, please contact the Admissions Office to arrange an alternative payment method.

by June 1

Complete a housing application via the Housing Portal if you wish to live in RISD housing. You'll need a user name and password to enter this site—both will be emailed to you upon receipt of your enrollment deposit.

by July 1

Confirm that you have satisfactorily completed your undergraduate education by arranging for your final, official transcript to be sent to the Admissions Office, if you have not already done so or if you expect to receive your baccalaureate degree this spring.

If the RISD program you are entering begins in June, you must submit your final transcript by June 1.

Change of address

Please notify the Admissions team of your new address should you happen to move. Keeping your records up to date will ensure that you receive all mailed information.

Get in touch

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 admissions@risd.edu.
