Students must meet the University's immunization requirements. Students will not be able to register until the requirements have been fulfilled. To provide documentation and for more information about how to meet the requirements, please see the Columbia Health website.
According to University regulations, each person whose registration has been completed will be considered a student of the University during the term for which he or she is registered unless the student’s connection with the University is officially severed by withdrawal or otherwise. No student registered in any school or college of the University shall at the same time be registered in any other school or college, either of Columbia University or of any other institution, with the exception of students participating in the Exchange Scholar Program or the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium.
The privileges of the University are not available to any student until he or she has completed registration. A student who is not officially registered for a University course may not attend the course. No student may register after the stated period unless he or she obtains the written consent of the appropriate dean or director.
The University reserves the right to withhold the privilege of registration or any other University privilege from any person with an unpaid debt to the University.
Continuous Registration Requirement
Students in all degree programs are required to register in each fall and spring semester until all degree requirements have been completed or until the time-to-degree limit (as noted in the Satisfactory Academic Progress page) has been reached. Students are exempt from the requirement to register continuously only when granted an official Leave of Absence by the GSAS Office of Student Affairs.
Students who register for a course offered by another school at the University are subject to the registration policies and procedures of that school.
