STEP 1: Watch Module 1 “Academic Overview”
Email with log in information will be sent to students on June 1
STEP 2: June 28-July 16 Advising Consultation & Spring Course Planning
Advising consultation: First, you will plan out your fall course schedule. Your advising Hub/school adviser will connect with you via your Rensselaer email to review your curriculum template and courses as you build your schedule online.
To prepare for online registration, we are asking you to review your schools advising page and become familiar with fall course options.
STEP 3: July 19-July 30 Course Registration
The next step is to register online (at sis.rpi.edu) for the Fall 2021 courses you selected. You will receive an email from Rensselaer with instructions on how to view your time ticket. Students must register online for a full course load. The typical schedule is 16-17 credits (four 4-credit classes and an optional 1-credit class for Engineering and Science majors) and includes courses from your major and Science, Math, and Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. Build more than one schedule so you have options. QUACS is a great tool to plan and visualize your course schedules.
Note: Prior to receiving your time ticket, visit the Student Information System (SIS) to review the financial responsibility agreement, RPI Alert system, and to make sure you have submitted all required medical forms. Also check out our video on how to register for classes through SIS!
STEP 4: Review Schedule
Review your schedule to ensure you are full-time status (more than 12 credits)
Review schedule to ensure you are within our recommended credit number (16-17 per semester)
