Application for a Single Course

Some professionals wish to take a single course to improve specific areas of their work or to test-drive a Rensselaer at Work program.

We recommend that you consider topics that directly apply to your work and projects that can make a difference in your approach. To discuss which courses might serve you best, schedule a Professional Consultation.

Completing an Application for a Single Course:

  1. Upload a copy of your bachelor’s (or highest degree) transcripts to the application form or email them to gradadmissions@rpi.edu
  2. Complete the Single Course Registration form.
  3. Identify the nature of your interest – future matriculation, taking a single course, or trialing a course.
  4. Upon application approval, you will receive an email confirming your course registration.
  5. Your Faculty Advisor will then contact you with details you will need leading up to the start of class.

Graduate Non-Matriculated Study Requirements:

  • The minimum requirement for admission to a graduate course is the completion of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree or equivalent.
  • Admission to a course as a non-matriculated (non-degree seeking) student is based on the applicant’s related academic and professional qualifications as well as space availability for the specific course(s) requested.
  • Up to 12 credit hours of non-degree study can be applied to a graduate degree program, or 6 credit hours toward a graduate certificate.

Benefits of Non-Matriculated Study:

  • Take just one course and experience a difference in your work in just four months.
  • Test-drive one Rensselaer at Work course to see how it fits your goals and your busy life.
  • Network with other like-minded professionals throughout the U.S. who are leading change and making a difference.
  • Completed non-matriculated coursework with a grade of B or better can be used towards an applicable graduate degree or certificate.
  • Most employer benefits cover payment of non-matriculated coursework.
