Graduation Requirements
RISD may not approve a return after a student’s leave of absence has expired. A student who is granted readmission after being away from RISD for four years or more will be required to satisfy the graduation requirements in effect at the time of their return.

Transfer of credits taken while on leave
Students should seek permission up front if they intend to request transfer credit for courses completed while on leave. The maximum number of credits to transfer back to RISD upon readmittance is twelve. That is, after a leave from RISD a student will be granted no more than 12 credits in transfer for coursework taken while on leave. See Transfer Credit Limitations after Initial Enrollment  for more information.
