Curriculum reform and renewal are moving forward at Rensselaer. It is our intent that, during this time of transition, enrolled students who are on track in their curriculum will stay on track. Our operating principle:
When Rensselaer accepts a student into a four year program, we commit to providing the academic programs and resources that make it possible for that student to graduate within an eight semester schedule. Curriculum reform does not change this commitment, nor will we allow the transition process to create situations in which students' academic programs are lengthened. This is consistent with students' obligation to meet the requirements of their degree
The school ombudspersons listed here are available to help you with questions arising from curriculum transition.
Humanities & Social Sciences
Management & Technology
In addition to the school ombudspersons, Bob Conway and the Advising & Learning Assistance Center (Sage 2106, 276-6269) are additional resources for all undergraduate students in all curricula.
As the transition continues, we will continue to make the Class Hour Schedule a source of up-to-date information about the curriculum, so you will have the necessary facts at hand as you plan your studies and make your registration choices. In addition to the Class Hour Schedule, the Advising & Learning Assistance Center Web Page will also be a source of the latest information about curriculum reform.
