On-line registration

With the exception of international students, all students should contact their adviser's department for course selection information before they attempt to register for courses.

If you are a domestic student who has access to the Internet and you know which courses you want to take, you may be able to register prior to your arrival on campus. If you are unable to register via on-line registration, or if you do not have access to the Internet, you will be able to register for your classes after you arrive at Rensselaer.

Please remember that all degree-seeking students must submit the required health form to the Health Center to be in compliance with New York State Immunization Law. International students are required to check-in with the ISSS Office before they can register.
