As spring semester comes to a close, it’s time to register for fall classes! Here’s a reminder that registration for fall 2017 classes starts today. Check SSOL to see when your registration time is, then be sure to log on right then so you get a good pick. May the odds be ever in your […]

Today is Tuesday, October 7, and if you’re in CC or Barnard, that date holds special significance for you. Alas, today is the deadline for dropping a non-Core class (the Core deadline passed a while ago) if you don’t want that nasty W on your record for all of your potential employer’s hiring managers to […]

Remember when myBarnard almost dropped everyone’s classes? Yea? Today, if you have bad professors, shitty lecture sections, or otherwise crappy classes that you don’t want anymore, feel free to drop them…but of your own volition. Make your changes before 5 pm, because that’s CC’s deadline for adding, dropping or changing sections of a Core class. For […]

There’s a new function on SSOL, as you might have noticed when you were attempting to finalize your class schedule. Once you click on the registration tab, look below your wish list for a few more options: Exciting! There’s a new option, titled a “registration calendar.” This seems like a rather odd name, because it’s really most useful to […]

Good news! Human interaction with your professors is now totally unnecessary, if you’re in CC or GS (SIPA too, but who cares?). The initiative to modernize the scheduling system continues with this update from the Registrar and CUIT. Now if you want to add or drop a class that requires instructor permission, starting February 3rd […]

You may have noticed that SSOL is in trouble. Sez an undated announcement on ssol.columbia.edu: Please note: SSOL has been experiencing an outage since early afternoon today September 3, 2013. At this time we are not clear when this will be back up. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Our technical staff […]

Victims of the hell that is Columbia class registration on SSOL, your experience is about to get a little bit easier. Triumphantly presented a few days ago by Barry Kane, God of the Registrar, SSOL now boasts a wish list AND a wait list, which Bwog learned are two vitally different things. The wish list […]

Don’t you hate sitting there hitting refresh on SSOL just hoping one person will drop out of that 15-person creative writing seminar?  Well, now you can stop hitting refresh and simply wait it out: there’s an automated waitlist!  That’s right, coming this fall (to instructors who choose to opt-in, including most non-core classes) all you have to […]

We’re not sure about you, but Bwog woke up this morning thinking 2013 would be different. We had high hopes that everything we wanted would come with this new year and all our wishes would be fulfilled. And then we checked SSOL, and grades were still missing. 2013 has come, and nothing has changed. In […]

Set your alarms, because the first of two additional registration windows for the Fall term begins bright and early tomorrow morning. According to Registrar Barry Kane, we’ll be able to take another stab at adding and dropping classes for the coming months from June 11 through June 22, and then again from July 30th through […]

The End of Days

The four horses of the SSOL apocalypse are on their way! Hurry up and register for that class that you thought you didn’t want to take but turned out to be full of unknown knowledge (or just full of easy homework assignments), as it’s the last day to add courses. Also, if you just don’t get MusicHum, drop […]
