Walking on campus

Before the end of each semester, all students enroll for courses for the next semester. With the help of a program adviser or by using a plan of study, specific required and elective courses are selected, and this information is submitted to the Registrar. Registration procedures are in the Class Hour Schedule, which is available from the Registrar's Office.

Courses with insufficient registration will be canceled. Students affected will be notified so that they can select another course. The university reserves the right to cancel or not offer any course listed in the Rensselaer Catalog.

Each student is expected to be familiar with the academic regulations of the university and the particular requirements for his or her educational program. The student has sole responsibility for complying with regulations and meeting degree requirements as set forth in this catalog and as amended from time to time.  Students should also consult the current edition of  The Rensselaer Handbook of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
