Early Registration

Incoming MS students can register for Fall 2022 classes starting Monday August 8th through August 19, 2022, if you have completed your MMR and vaccination paperwork. If you are unable to register during this time, or wish to make adjustments, you will have an opportunity to register when you arrive on campus for orientation.  The last day to make adjustments is September 16, 2022.

You must read the following instructions very carefully. Failure to read instructions may result in cancelled registrations.

Students register for classes on Student Services Online.

Step 1

Login to Student Services Online with your UNI and UNI password.

Step 2

Click on the "Registration Appointments" menu. Registration appointments are designated times during which you may enroll in course(s) using SSOL registration.

Step 3

Register for courses during the registration appointment times. Review below for the courses to register; do not register for any additional coursework.  

Step 4

Review Early Registration Tips.

During this early registration period, you are only allowed to register for:

  • IEOR courses (Industrial Engineering and Operations Research courses) – e.g. IEOR E4004
  • IEOR courses in conjunction with another department – e.g. CSOR W4231, IEME E4310
  • Professional Development & Leadership courses – e.g. ENGI E4000

Students who fail to adhere to the course restriction policy by registering for courses other than those listed above will have their registration voided.  We may have to drop all of the courses to which you register, including your IEOR courses. You will then be limited to the availability of courses in late August when registration reopens.

Review the advising announcements and documents for your degree requirements and course selection in your IEOR Advising Groups: MSBA | MSFE | MSIE | MSE | MSOR.

You will have an opportunity to register for additional electives when you arrive in August. If you are interested in taking courses from other graduate schools such as Graduate School of Business (GSB) or School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), you may request such courses in late August. 

Happy registration!  Shall you have any academic questions or concerns, you may email the Academic Team. You must use your Columbia email address to contact us, so we can properly identify you. We will not reply to emails sent using non-Columbia addresses.
