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

Your course schedule for Fall will be available for viewing in early September on WebAdvisor (wa.risd.edu). 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.). If you want a paper copy, Web Advisor allows you to print your schedule. Stay tuned for an email when your schedule is available for viewing.
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!
