Caps and Gowns
Students also need to reserve their caps and gowns. There will be a link sent out to register for the caps and gowns in early March and the deadline will be late April. The caps and gowns can then be picked up at the RISD Store the week leading up to Commencement.
Graduating students will receive an email in early March regarding Commencement, including reserving tickets.
Students can reserve up to 6 tickets, with the option of requesting more on a waitlist. They must reserve what they need in order to receive the tickets via the ticket reservation form. Based on demand, waitlist tickets allocated closer to the event. (Graduating students do NOT need a ticket for themselves)
Tickets are picked up at Carr House the week leading up to commencement. Guests must have a ticket to get into the ceremony, students must pick them up ahead of time. Tickets are open seating, first come first served. If your guests require special seating (handicapped access, etc), there is a place in the ticket reservation form to include that information. We ask that we receive those requests ahead of time in order to plan accordingly.
RISD is located just off of I-95 and I-195 on the East Side of Providence in the College Hill neighborhood.
