General Registration Information
At RISD, most departments preregister students into major classes and students then choose electives and Liberal Arts on their own using Student Planning, the online web registration system. In addition to this per-registration, certain academic departments, mainly Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Industrial Design and Interior Architecture, hold presentations for each advanced studio section just before classes begin.
The Academic Calendar provides dates of registration. When web registering with Student Planning, students are limited to 16 credits. For more information, refer to the previous section "Maximum Semester/Wintersession Term Credits".
