Advanced Program Online Student Handbook and Resource Guide
This handbook provides Advanced Program Online students and their families with useful information about the course work, learning in the online space, and student support, resources and policies.

Students and parents/guardians are required to review the Student Handbook and Resource Guide and we strongly encourage you to review it together to help ensure student success.

Additionally, campus resources like the Fleet Library, Nature Lab and RISD Museum have various online resources that students can engage with and access for specific Advanced Program Online classes.

Courses are not offered for college credit and students must obtain parent/guardian approval to register.
