The Admissions Office's primary mission is to ensure the enrollment goals of the college by bringing in new degree program students. We work with first-year, transfer, visiting, post bac, and graduate students. Our office achieves these goals through recruitment and outreach, application review by faculty and staff, and engagement with admitted students. If you find yourself working with a student who is interested in joining RISD's degree program, please direct them to our office for the most up-to-date information about applying and deadlines.

Campus Tours:
The Admissions Office regularly offers campus tours and information programs to prospective students and families. Students can view the full schedule of available events on risd.edu. We also accommodate campus tours for new employees. Please email admissions@risd.edu to schedule a tour for a newly hired employee.
