The best way to decide if Rensselaer is the right fit for you is to visit our campus. The Office of Admission offers information sessions, tours, open houses, and special seasonal visits. If you can't make it for a formal tour, or just want to check out campus at your own pace, download our self-guided tour.
Hear from an admissions counselor for an hour-long admission and financial aid information session, followed by a student-led walking tour of the campus. This is a great time to learn more about Rensselaer and our application process, and to ask questions!
Tuesday-Friday, February 20-23, 2018
Save the date - join us to learn more about Rensselaer! Agenda and RSVP information will be available in the coming months.
Information sessions and tours on Saturday mornings are held in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS). Specific parking information will be included in your visit confirmation email.
The Admissions office is closed on Saturdays from December through February (with the exception of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and President’s Day weekends). The office is also closed the weekends of Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving.
Please Note — Rensselaer students do not have weekend classes; therefore, access to academic buildings and laboratories can be limited on weekends.
