Wintersession Travel Courses

Wintersession Travel Courses are open to all enrolled RISD students and require an application process to be reviewed by the faculty members teaching the course. Freshmen students are eligible for certain travel courses with the approval of the Dean of Experimental & Foundation Studies.

Students are required to pay an additional tuition for Wintersession Travel Courses. This tuition cost is typically inclusive of: mandatory accommodations with the group, certain group meals, field trips, some local transportation, and obligatory medical/security insurance, among other individual costs. The full course description will include additional details which may not be listed here. Students are responsible for securing their own travel visa, but are reminded that RISD Global is available for assistance with this process.
