COVID-19 Safety Information

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 Pre-College participants will be required to comply. 

Below are the current requirements and protocols pertinent to COVID-19 and in-person Pre-College programs. 

  • 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. 
  • If you are a student and are experiencing Covid-like symptoms, please contact Student Health Services to determine what type of visit or testing is recommended.

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 Pre-College communities through email and student portals, as they are available.
