Attending Rensselaer means that you are part of a community that is on the cutting edge of technology—whether in the classroom or in the surrounding social community.

Access to this technology comes in different forms once you’re a student. One of the major access points is your Rensselaer Computing System (RCS) User ID. Your RCS ID is used for things such as access to your RPI e-mail, access to our online tools to be successful in class, access to registering for NRB, and access to grade information.

Starting in late March, the First Year Experience Office will email deposited students a Personal Identification Number, instructions, and a website that will allow you to receive your RCS ID and create a password for this account. This message will be sent to the email address you have on file with the Admissions office. Please note that as mentioned below, most communication from Rensselaer will soon shift to your Rensselaer email account.

This will also prompt our systems to establish your Rensselaer email account. It is your responsibility to establish, maintain, and consistently check your Rensselaer email. Throughout the spring, many offices on campus will start using this email as the main point of electronic communication.

The First Year Experience Office will begin sending PINs in late March to deposited students, including students who were accepted through Early Decision I or II.

Regular Decision Students: If you don’t receive your PIN within 7 days of Admissions processing your enrollment deposit, contact the Student Orientation office at 518-276-8632.
