Time Ticket Information and What to do if you have a Hold

Registration for next semester begins soon for all currently registered Rensselaer Students.
You have been assigned a time ticket based upon your total number of earned credits.

Your time ticket is in United States Eastern Standard Time and is displayed in military/24 hour time. You may register any time after your assigned time slot during the registration period.

  • If you are unfamiliar with military time representation, times of 0000-1200 are equivalent to AM times. For times between 1201 and 2359, subtract 12 to get the equivalent PM time - for example a time of 1600 equates to 4:00 pm, a time of 1930 equates to 7:30 pm).

Make sure to double check your major which is listed on your time ticket. If your major is not updated, you must file a Change of Major form with the Registrar’s office before registration!

  • Please note that some engineering students are listed as Undeclared Engineering until they formally declare their major.

Students with a hold must clear the hold with the appropriate office before registering.

  • If you have a Bursar Hold, records indicate that your account still shows an outstanding balance. To remove this hold, you must satisfy your obligation in full. Payments will be accepted at the Bursar's Office, located on 2nd floor of Academy Hall. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • If you have a Medical Hold, your health records are incomplete or missing. To remove this hold, you must go (in person) to the Health Center. Their office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Health Center requests that you do not phone to clear a hold.
  • If you have a Dean of Students Hold or Greek Hold, you must contact the Dean of Students office immediately. Their office is located on the 4th floor of Academy Hall, office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
  • If you have a Graduate Services Hold, please contact the Office of Graduate Education, which is located at 1516 Peoples Ave, office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
  • If you have a School of Engineering Hold, you have not declared your major. Please contact the School of Engineering. Their office is located in the JEC building, room 3018, office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.
  • If you have an Exit Interview or Student Loan Hold, you have yet to sign your student loan exit interview. To remove this hold, please contact Pamela McCumber (mccump@rpi.edu) in the Student Loan office. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Pamela’s phone number: 276-6263.

When registration closes at the end of the scheduled registration period, it will remain closed for several weeks, but reopen on the date indicated on the Academic Calendar. You will not be able to alter your registration during this time period.

If you miss the initial registration period you will have to pay a $50.00 Late Registration Fee before you can register. Students who have not registered by the first day of classes must pay a $75.00 fee. These fees must be paid before you will be allowed to register for classes; once the fee is paid the hold will be released.
