Registration Instructions

Welcome again to Columbia University School of Professional Studies (SPS) and New York City! We are so excited to have you studying with us this term. 

All students at SPS have access to a dedicated Academic Advisor who can guide them through many aspects of their time at Columbia University, but our first role is to help you register for classes for the term(s) you will be studying with us. We know that registration can sometimes be a bit confusing and stressful, so we wanted to provide you with some guidance to help make your course enrollment go as smoothly as possible.

Understanding this information will assist you in enrolling into courses of your choice, preparing backup courses should your first choice be unavailable, and highlighting some courses that you might have an interest in that you didn't even know exist!
