If you enroll in a course that is canceled, you are notified and given the option of substituting another course or receiving a full refund. For this reason, it is extremely important that we have your correct telephone numbers and email addresses. Additionally, in the case of these circumstances, please note that RISD|CE is not responsible for supplies purchased prior to the start of classes or other expenses (such as travel or lodging) that may be incurred in advance. Refunds take two to four weeks to process and take the form of the original payment method for the cancelled course.

Tuition discounts are available to senior citizens (ages 65+), Adult Continuing Education Certificate Graduates, RISD alumni, RISD matriculated students and RISD Museum members. The online registration system will automatically apply the discount to eligible registrants. The discount will not apply to special costs such as transportation, admittance fees, and so forth. Discounts are not transferable to family members. Also, these discounts apply only once; that is, if a senior citizen is also an alumnus, the discount is still 10 percent. These discounts apply to the current semester only and are not retroactive. The discount does not apply to special fees.

RISD|CE gift cards are available in any denomination. Please call 401 454-6200, or stop in to the CE Office for more information or to purchase a gift card.
