Columbia P&S Assistant Professor, Harris Wang, Receives Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.—By Chris Williams
Registration for each term occurs within designated periods. Within these periods, you will be assigned specific registration appointment times. Your appointment times will generally be available on Student Services Online (SSOL) two weeks prior to the registration period, but specific registration instructions are announced by each school in advance of each registration period.
Students often register by hierarchy during registration periods as established by each school. Some schools determine appointment distributions by class standing, others by random selection. Certain cohorts of students may receive priority registration appointments when deemed appropriate by their school or program. The Office of the University Registrar adheres to each school’s guidelines for setting registration appointments.
You must be registered for at least one class prior to the first day of classes each term. Otherwise, you may be charged a late registration fee.
You will not be permitted to register if a hold has been placed on your student account. To find out if you have a registration hold, check Holds on SSOL.
If you are not able to register through SSOL, check with your school for the proper procedure.
Some classes may be blocked for web registration and require approval, written or electronic. SSOL will indicate this when you try to register. Registration Adjustment Forms submitted to the Student Service Center in 205 Kent Hall must have proper approval signatures and will not be accepted if the class is available for registration using SSOL.
The Wait List feature for course registration in SSOL went live for participating schools and departments on the first day of classes, Tuesday, September 3, 2013.
Students may choose within SSOL to place themselves on course Wait Lists, which are of two varieties: either autofill or self-managed by the faculty.
During the Change of Program period, students can add and drop courses using SSOL. Online Wait Lists continue to be available during this period.
Students must use the last day of the Change of Program period to resolve any course conflicts and point overages. If a schedule overlap is created through registration using the Wait List, the student must resolve the overlap in SSOL by the end of the Change of Program period, or submit a petition to his or her home school according to its established policies.
Following the Change of Program period, the Post-Change of Program Add/Drop Period begins. Students in some schools may add or drop courses in SSOL, with faculty or departmental approval, until the drop deadline. Once faculty or departmental approval is granted, students will be sent an email to that effect and then must complete the registration action in SSOL by officially adding the course to their schedule.
By completing registration actions, students acknowledge responsibility for the accuracy of their schedule and assume responsibility for associated financial and academic penalties.
