Tuition and Aid
Understanding your costs and financing options is an important part of planning your RISD experience. Student Financial Services (SFS) supports you and your family in seeking, obtaining and making the best use of all resources available to help finance the costs of attending RISD.
The estimated cost of education for any college is based on tuition and required fees (costs that are billed to you directly) plus estimated costs for room and/or rent, board and/or food, supplies, personal expenses and transportation (indirect, variable costs). See our breakdown of estimated 2023–24 costs at RISD for more information.
