Fifth-year Advising

Architecture majors and Brown|RISD Dual Degree (BRDD) Program students complete a fifth year at RISD. Sometimes students pursuing a secondary major will also need to complete a fifth year. BRDD students should consult with the program’s lead academic advisor.

Architecture students in the fifth year complete 30 credits in the degree program for a total of 156. All non-major studio electives and Liberal Arts requirements should be complete prior to your fifth year.

To find your academic advisor, log into Workday with your RISD credentials and follow these steps.
