Student Orientation 2021

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

Advising will run from June 21 - July 16. 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.

Webinars

The HASS Hub will host a variety of webinars from June 21 - July 16. A complete list of dates and times, including log-in passwords, will be emailed to HASS majors and is available upon request. You can also find all dates and times for HASS webinars and the webinars of other schools, under Advising and Registration on the Student Orientation site.

Below you will find a running calendar of our next webinars with descriptions and links to the webinar session (just remember, you’ll need a password to log-in).
