    – MS Students, in particular., read over “faculty” and “research” on
      www.ecse.rpi.edu for Advisor Interests and general Masters
      Research Areas.
    – Make sure to carefully read the “Footnotes” and “Example”
      within your appropriate PoS Worksheet.
    – Hand in both your completed PoS Worksheet and the official RPI
      PoS to Pris, appropriately.
    – Base your registration on rpinfo.rpi.edu “Class Hours” &
      “Course Catalog”. And also on sis.rpi.edu “Topics and New
