New Electronic Forms Available

The Registrar’s Office is excited to announce the first of many electronic forms available for completion and submission by students.

The Address Change form and the Student Information Release (aka the FERPA waiver) form are now available for submission through etrieve, RISD’s new electronic form system.

The etrieve system requires login with your RISD credentials to verify your identity and allow certain fields in the form to be pre-populated. On submission, the form travels along an established workflow notifying each person and the submitter upon completion.

This new system will provide the opportunity to improve efficiency and accuracy for many of our processes.

To access etrieve guide: Documentation and Training Materials
To access etrieve directly, visit: etcentral.risd.edu

More forms will be rolled out in the following months – stay tuned!
