International Exchange Program

RISD maintains formal exchange agreements with specific departments within art and design institutions in twenty-four countries. (Read more). Every semester RISD sends approximately twenty students abroad on exchange and also receives the same number of international exchange students.

International Exchange is open primarily to students in their junior or senior year who are in good standing and meet the eligibility requirements of their specific programs. Students must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher. The student chooses which institution he or she wishes to attend, but the institution retains sole discretion to accept or deny individual applications. Discussions and approval must occur between the applicant and their RISD department head prior to application.
