Registration and Program Filing

Every student has to register and file an approved program at the beginning of every semester.

Registration is the means by which students verify their enrollment at the college and that you have cleared any holds, and you must register from a computer on the Barnard or Columbia campus to confirm your presence. “Registration” does not refer to the process of signing up for classes, which is done through program filing.

Program Filing is done four times a year: advance program-filing in April and November, and final program-filing in September and January.
