The Office of Undergraduate Education offers a Summer Academic Program for Rensselaer International Students (SAPRIS). This seven-week residential program gives you the opportunity to complete a four-credit course on public speaking, get language support in small groups, and explore the region in guided trips. By the start of the fall semester you should have the confidence and skills needed to participate fully in classes. The program fee INCLUDES tuition, plus housing (until you move into your fall dorm), health insurance, and all group activities. The program is limited to forty (40) students, so apply early. Course registration will be coordinated after you are accepted to the SAPRIS program; do not register for the course directly. By completing this online form you are applying to participate in the SAPRIS program. Completing the application does not guarantee acceptance into the program. You will be notified of your acceptance status in the coming weeks.
