Student Orientation 2022

Welcome to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute!

We are excited to welcome you to campus and have you join our community. The School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Hub is your starting point for understanding your academics.

HASS Student Services

Students are assigned both a faculty and Hub advisor. Your faculty advisor will concentrate on your four year academic plan, research, and career aspirations. Your Hub advisor will assist with questions regarding institute policies, regulations, and course enrollment, as well as provide information for other campus resources.

To set up an appointment with a HASS Hub staff member, please visit the HASS Hub.


Advising will run from July 11 - July 20. During this time, HASS Student Services will offer a variety of webinars, as well as individual advising sessions, to help you determine which courses you should be taking in the fall.

For individual advising sessions, please schedule an appointment with the HASS Hub.
