Important Information About Online Enrollment for New Students

  • Online enrollment is available for qualifying students in grades Pre-K through 12.
    • Online enrollment for 2019-2020 will be available for qualifying students in grades Kindergarten through 12.
  • A “snapcode” is not required for new student online enrollment.
  • One application per student.
  • All students should register at their attendance area school. Families should contact their attendance area school for questions or directions concerning the online enrollment process.
    • Schools have the right to move a student to the correct campus if the wrong school is selected during the online enrollment process.

A parent or guardian should provide the following documents when enrolling a new student in RISD

Additional Information

If required documents are not submitted during the online enrollment process, the documents can be taken to the campus in person. Enrollment is not considered finalized until all required documents, such as proof of residency, have been submitted and reviewed by the school.
