Welcome to the School of Engineering, Class of 2023!
We are so excited to welcome you to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's School of Engineering! This summer is the start of your new chapter, and the School of Engineering First-Year Advising Hub is here to guide and support the decisions you will make to achieve your goals.
Before, during and after Student Orientation, you will work with your Academic Advisor (from The Hub) to plan and register for your first semester of courses. Keep an eye on your new Rensselaer email account! We will email you important information as we get closer to summer registration. Once you are on campus this fall, we will continue to guide you through all curriculum requirements and make a plan for the years to come!
Have a look through the rest of The SoE First-Year Advising Hub website to get an idea of who we are, how you can connect with your advisor, and how we support you academically in your first year at Rensselaer. We also invite you to follow us on social media, where we share important dates/deadlines, and updates from The Hub.
