As a student here at Rensselaer, you are issued a "time
ticket," which assigns you a specific window of time during
which you may register for the next semester. Your time
ticket will be sent to your RPI email address, 2 - 3 weeks
Your registration time is assigned based on the number of
credit hours you have earned as a student.
Please note that classes which are still in progress or
courses which have been graded as "incomplete" do
not count towards earned credits, nor do transferred
courses and Advanced Placement (AP) credit.
The table below shows the range of earned credit hours
associated with each class.

You should receive your time ticket via e-mail
approximately four weeks prior to the scheduled registration
period. In addition to making the registration assignment,
this e-mail message notifies you of any existing holds which
may prevent you from registering if you do not resolve them.
We've included a sample
time ticket to give you a better example of what you
might see in your e-mail notice.
If you do not receive your e-mail time ticket or have
misplaced it, you can find the identical information through
the Student Information System
(SIS). After logging in, first select the Student
Menu option, then View My Registration
