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".

Information on registration procedures is posted on the Registrar’s Office website. A pdf version of the Course Announcement is also available on there.
