How to apply
- 7 years of education and/or relevant work experience (can include 2-4 year post-secondary diploma or degree in graphic design or related field)
If you have 15 years of education and/or relevant work experience (can include a maximum of 7 years of education), you are exempt from 3 out of the 5 sections of the Online Test. Only the Ethics and Accessibility sections must be successfully completed.
Once your application is received, it will be reviewed by members of our Eligibility Review Committee to determine if you fall under the Regular Eligibility or the Seniority Exemption. You will be informed within one week of your eligibility.
We will then work with you to schedule sessions for your Online Test and Portfolio Presentation.
The entire process can take as little as 2 weeks from application to RGD membership but you can take up to 6 months after applying to go through the process.
