How can I get a copy of my transcript or other academic information?
Everything related to your grades, the courses you took and other academic information about you is on file in the Registrar’s Office. The fastest route to finding what you need is to go directly to the RISD Registrar’s site.
How can I share news about my recent activities (exhibition, marriage, award, job change, etc.) with other alumni?
We are no longer accepting or displaying class notes on the website, but email us to share personal and professional news about what you’ve been up to in the print version of RISD XYZ and on RISD’s online exhibitions page.
How can I make an Annual Fund contribution or give to RISD in some other way?
It's easy to make a gift – especially online – and you can even designate where you want your money to go. Why not start now?
How do I get a new alumni card? And why would I want one in the first place?
To request a card, email Christina Rodriguez 03 IL with your full name, graduation year, major, and current mailing address (note it can take up to 4 weeks to receive your card). Current benefits include a 10% discount at the RISD Store and risd|works, discounts off of certain Continuing Education classes, and borrowing privileges at the RISD library. Alumni with a card may also rent the use of RISD's Tillinghast Farm on Narragansett Bay in Barrington, RI.
How can I participate in an alumni art sale?
If you're a RISD alum who graduated from an undergraduate or graduate degree program, you’re welcome to apply to participate in the juried show on Benefit Street during RISD By Design Alumni Reunion + Parents' Weekend and the RISD Alumni + Student Holiday Art Sale at the RI Convention Center in December. You can find out everything you need to know here.
How can I find and connect with alumni in my area? And how do I go about starting an alumni club if there aren’t any near me?
The best way to get in touch with alums in your area is to: 1) make sure your contact information is up-to-date with the Alumni Relations, so that you’ll receive notices about events in your area, and 2) check in with the club leader or contact in your area so that you’re aware of any events or activities already planned. The best way to update your information is right here – by updating your Account information online.
If you’re interested in starting a club in your area or want to serve as a local contact, please email Claire Robinson, or give her a ring at 401 454-6379.
