Course Registration, Housing, and Dining for Columbia Students

Prior to going abroad and while you are abroad, be mindful of the following steps you need to successfully return to Columbia University:

Columbia Course Registration

If you are on a semester or academic year study abroad program, you need to register for courses for the following semester at Columbia University while you are abroad. As usual, you will receive a date and time for registration on SSOL.
