Registration for each term occurs within designated periods. Within these periods, you will be assigned specific registration appointment times. Your appointment times will be available on Student Services Online about two weeks prior to the registration period.

For further information, please see Registration Instructions.

Late Registration Reminder

You must be registered for at least one class prior to the first day of classes. Otherwise, you will be charged a late registration fee. As long as you have activated the term by registering for any class, you may add and drop throughout the Change-of-Program period without a fee.

Note the following:

  • Columbia College and SEAS register by class hierarchy in the April and November periods.
  • Journalism, Law, Business, Medical, and Dental do not adhere to the general patterns above. If you are a student in one of those schools, you should contact your student affairs office.
