As a result of a cooperative arrangement, RISD students may elect certain courses at Brown University. Brown students may also elect certain courses at RISD. (Note: Brown|RISD Dual Degree students do not register through the cross-registration process as they are enrolled in degree granting programs at both schools).
Registration at either school is on a space-available basis and is subject to permission of the course instructor and the host-school’s Registrar.
For the 2020-2021 academic year, cross-registration between Brown and RISD is allowed ONLY for the Fall 2020 semester. Brown students will not be permitted to cross-register during the RISD Wintersession or RISD Spring 2021 terms. RISD students will not be permitted to cross-register in the Brown Winter/Spring 2021 or Summer 2021 terms.
