Answers for CE Students

While campus life is on hold, your continuing education doesn’t have to be. Explore remote learning and other resources below.

RISD CE has canceled all in-person classes, including adult programs, Young Artist classes, Summer Programs and Pre-College.

We have transformed several of our in-person courses to an accessible online format that will allow you to connect, engage and create while maintaining the social distance that is vital to our response to COVID-19. We are actively planning online courses to be offered this summer. Please visit and join our mailing list for updates.

If you are a certificate student preparing to graduate, you will receive your certificate as originally planned. We are planning to hold the graduation ceremony at a time when it is safe to do so for you and your families. We will send more details as we finalize plans for 2020 RISD CE Certificate Graduation and continue to keep you informed as plans are clarified.

While our offices remain closed, we are working remotely and remain available via email. Please email us at with any question or concerns. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube for updates.
