Advising for Registration

Advising for Registration

All students are assigned an academic advisor upon entry to RISD. Your advisor is available to talk with you about your academic program, to familiarize you with RISD’s academic procedures and resources and to help identify and solve problems. Foundation Studio instructors serve as advisors for freshmen; faculty members of students' major departments serve as advisors thereafter. Liberal Arts faculty provide additional advising for students in their junior year.

Assistance with procedural matters relating to registration, course selection and Program Evaluations is available from the Registrar’s office.
