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.
