Registrar & BCIT hard at work addressing waitlist issues

We are aware that some students are experiencing problems with their placement on waiting lists for individual courses.

The Barnard Registrar's Office and BCIT are working to address this as swiftly as possible.  Because of the number of individuals, departments, and computer programs involved in Columbia/Barnard registration, this system is quite complex.

Thank you for your patience while everyone works on this.
