Arch/CCPD

If you have secured a fall-away internship, co-op, civic engagement, or off-campus research opportunity, please email your offer letter and resume to co-op@rpi.edu and log into SIS to record your away-semester plans by July 24.

Your offer should be on company letterhead or from an official company email and contain the name and location of the employer, start date, end date, number of hours per week you will be working, hourly rate, name of your supervisor, and a brief description of the work you will be doing.

The CCPD will respond via your student email account once the opportunity has been verified and approved to begin the registration process. You will also be enrolled in an LMS course during your away semester, which will be covered in the required Away Semester Briefing found in Skillport.

Yes, you will spend the fall semester taking remote classes and spring semester on campus. Any early Arch student who has secured a semester away for the fall 2020 or spring 2021 term should pursue the opportunity and return the next semester following the pandemic parameters for their entering class year.

(This applies to students with exemptions, who took a leave, participated in an ILE during the summer, and those who secured an approved fall-away experience.)

Yes. Juniors who are scheduled to take courses remotely in the spring will have course availability. As the spring schedule of courses becomes available during the fall term, students should connect with their faculty adviser/HUB with questions related to spring registration.

Any juniors who were given Arch exceptions will take courses remotely in the spring. If they have classes that meet in person and they decide to return to Troy, they can go to their class provided that the instructor has room for them. However, they are strongly encouraged to stay home.

No decisions have been made. A Webex is scheduled for Thursday, July 9, at 4 p.m. to discuss NCAA athletics. RPI Athletics staff members will discuss this transition and what to expect as a student-athlete. Click to Register (registration opens seven days prior to event).

For students with a current fall-away designation who do not submit fall semester plans into SIS by July 24 will be issued a time ticket for fall registration and your semester-away designation will be changed to spring 2021. No time tickets will be issued prior to July 24, 2020. Should you have any questions regarding this process, please contact thearch@rpi.edu.
