Overpayments: If you have an
overpayment on your tuition account, request a refund from the Student Accounts
Ofﬁce. It takes seven to 10 business days to prepare a check.
Payment Plans: Monthly
payment plans enable families to spread payment of annual billed charges over
12 months in equal installments. The first payment is typically due in early
July. The Tuition Management System manages the payment plan for RISD. For more information please visit www.afford.com.
invoices are mailed to your home address each July and December. The ﬁrst
semester bill must be paid by August 15 and the second semester bill by January
10. If you do not pay your tuition bill or make alternative arrangements by the
above due dates, you will be charged a late fee on the respective due date. Any
amount unpaid after the due date is subject to an interest charge, unless an
alternative payment plan has been arranged. Settlement of this obligation rests
with you or your parents.
In fairness to those who pay tuition
promptly and in full, RISD observes the following policies: No student may
withdraw in good standing unless all current ﬁnancial obligations to the
institution have been met. Until that time, no diploma, certiﬁcate, transcript,
letter of honorable dismissal or recommendation will be granted. If your
account becomes past due, you will be subject to dismissal. If you have an
outstanding ﬁnancial obligation to RISD for tuition, fees and/or purchases at
the RISD Store, you will not receive grades or transcripts. Unsatisﬁed ﬁnancial
obligations will also block your registration.
