Welcome to Orientation

Welcome to Orientation


Orientation is an important part of the student experience - filled with opportunities to connect in-person and virtually, helping you to navigate Rensselaer and beyond. For the health and safety of our students and families, orientation will be delivered remotely, until you arrive on campus in August. You can look forward to both live and recorded sessions, online modules, class registration, housing, meeting your new classmates, and more!

We encourage students as well as parent and families to navigate the Orientation page and be sure to read all communications sent to you. Students, please read all communications sent to you @rpi.edu email. Parents, communications will be sent to the email address that was provided to Rensselaer on the admissions application.
