Student Planning FAQS

Incoming First-Year Student Registration

Welcome new First-Year students!   Over the summer, the Experimental and Foundation Studies and Liberal Arts Offices are developing your course schedule. You will be registered into all of your required courses for the fall semester.

Your course schedule for Fall will be available for viewing in early September in Student Planning the online self-service academic planning and registration tool for students. Click here to see a sample freshman schedule.

All first year students are assigned three Foundation Studios, each meeting one full day a week.  The studios are “Drawing”, “Design” and “Spatial Dynamics”.  In addition to the three studios, students are assigned two courses in Liberal Arts (for a total of 5 courses for the semester).  Each course is worth three credits, for a total of fifteen (15) semester credits.

You will be sent an email notification to your risd.edu email account when your schedule is ready to view.  At that point you can check your schedule online, and then check it again just prior to classes beginning in case any adjustments were made (building/room changes, etc.).

In the meantime, continue to check the Orientation website for all sorts of information regarding orientation, activities, and much more.

We look forward to your arrival in September!
