Alumni Login to the Poly

Issues of The Rensselaer Polytechnic dating from 1978 and later require authentication, and alumni can do so using their Rensselaer Alumni Association credentials. The following steps will guide you through the process.

If you do not already have an alumni username and password, set one up from the Rensselaer Alumni Association web page.

1. Open Rensselaer Digital Collections.

2. Browse (or search) The Rensselaer Polytechnic (student newspaper), which is listed under Featured Collections.

3. If you select an issue dated 1978 or later (by clicking its thumbnail image), a page will open with this message:login_message4. Click Login as a different user to open the login window.

5. Enter your RAA username and password.

6. In the Login type box, select Rensselaer Alumni Authentication from the drop-down menu.

7. Click the Login button.

That should open the issue you want to see, but if not, please contact us for further assistance.
