If you are a current University of Minnesota ‐ Twin Cities or Rochester student, you can register for Rothenberger Institute (RI) courses just as you would your other courses—through the online class schedule via your MyU portal. By the first day of the term, you can expect your RI course to show up in your list of courses in your Canvas dashboard.

If you are a current University of Minnesota student enrolled on the Crookston, Duluth, or Morris campus and you are interested in taking an RI course that’s not offered on your campus, you can register for a Twin Cities section of the course by filling out a multi‐institutional form. You will need to consult with your advisor to discuss how RI courses fit into your course plan, as well as your financial aid office.

Even if you’re not an admitted student at the University of Minnesota and Rothenberger Institute (RI) courses aren’t offered through your own campus, you can still take an RI course by enrolling as a non–degree student. The non‐degree registration website explains the registration process, as well as how to initiate your University of Minnesota online account, pay your bill, and explore resources for financial aid.
