Registration FAQs

Can I register for a course if I do not meet the prerequisites?

No. Students must meet all course prerequisites, if any are listed. Students who register for a course without having fulfilled prerequisites will be deregistered and asked to register for a different course.

What if my class is full?

Once a course fills, it will not be overenrolled. This policy is to ensure that we maintain a small course size with a high level of engagement and rigor.

How can I see how many students are enrolled in a course?

Space in courses is limited. Students may check up-to-date, real-time enrollment numbers for any course by clicking on the Call Number on a course’s description page. This will bring you to Columbia's Directory of Classes, where you can see live enrollment details.

Can I register for more than one class?

Students participating in the Summer Online 2-Week program may take up to two courses. Students participating in the Summer Online 1-Week program can only take one course..

When will my class appear on CourseWorks?

You will be able to view and access your class in Courseworks approximately one week before the start of class.

How to Register

1. Activate Your UNI

Approximately 5-7 business days after confirming your enrollment and paying a non-refundable enrollment deposit, you will receive a next steps email containing an activation link for your UNI. Your UNI will provide access to SSOL (Student Services Online), which is where you will complete the registration process.

2. Submit your Enrollment Forms

3. Make your Final Course Selection

Select the course(s) you would like to register for. Please carefully review your desired course’s prerequisites and ensure you have completed the prerequisites with a B or higher. Course registration is closely monitored by our admissions team and students will not be permitted to participate in a course whose prerequisites they have not appropriately fulfilled. Once selected, navigate to the course description page and locate the corresponding call number. To confirm the course times that are available during your session, click the call number corresponding to the session you will be attending. This link will take you to the Directory of Classes, where our most up to date course information can be found. 

Please note, some curricular options may be comprised of both a recitation and a practicum. In addition, some courses may have more than one available section per session. Individual course listing pages will provide additional guidance for such instances.

Course Pages & Call Numbers

Call numbers are unique course identifiers assigned to each curricular offering. Call numbers can be found on individual course description pages, linked below.

4. Identify your Registration Appointment

Using your UNI, log in to your SSOL Account. Under the "Academic Records" section of the menu, click on Registration Appointments. There you will find the date and time of your registration appointment. You may only register during the times indicated.

5. Register for Class

When your registration appointment arrives, log back in to SSOL and click on Registration under the 'Academic Records' menu. Review the registration agreement and proceed to the next step.

Enter the call number associated with your selected course and click, "Query/Add Class". Confirm that the generated course details match the details of your course selection. Once confirmed, click "Add Class" to formally register.

Students do not receive a confirmation email from SSOL. Students are expected to self-confirm their course registration by clicking on the "Schedule" tab in SSOL. If you see your course on the "Schedule" tab, your registration was successful, and no further registration action is required. If you do not see your course in the Schedule tab, please reach out to the Admissions Office for guidance.
