February, 2022 Update
RISD has developed a comprehensive set of protocols and associated policies to protect the health and safety of students and the broader community from the spread of the novel coronavirus on campus. Regardless of any changes in those requirements and guidelines, all Continuing Education and Pre-College participants will be required to comply.
Below are the current requirements and protocols pertinent to COVID-19 and in-person Continuing Education and Pre-College programs:
- RISD strongly encourages vaccination for all Continuing Education (CE) students and faculty for adult and youth (ages 6-17) in-person programming.
- For RISD Pre-College students, proof of vaccination — including booster — is required and collected after admittance into the program. All students participating in RISD Pre-College will have daily access to RISD Health Services.
These requirements and guidelines may continue to evolve and change as we near the start of the program. RISD continues to work closely with the Rhode Island Department of Health and monitor Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.
Updates to COVID-19 related policies and decisions will be posted on covid.risd.edu and communicated to the CE and Pre-College communities through email and student portals, as they are available.
