Every student has to confirm enrollment and register for classes, with adviser approval, at the beginning of every semester.
Enrollment Confirmation is the means by which students verify their enrollment at the college and that they have cleared any holds. Students must register from a computer on the Barnard or Columbia campus to confirm their presence. Effective fall 2016, Barnard uses the term "Registration" for what was formerly Program Filing. Students must complete both processes, separately: Enrollment Confirmation and Registration for Classes.
Registration (formerly Program Filing) is done four times a year: advance registration in April and November, and final registration in September and January. Adviser approval is required each time.
