Columbia Summer in Venice Information Session

Date; Monday, November 27
Time12-1 pm
Location: 832 Schermerhorn Hall

The Department of Art History and Archaeology and the Department of Italian offer a six week summer program based at Ca' Foscari University in Venice. The program uses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding Italian culture and society through study of its language, literature/film, art history, conservation, and history and the opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation of the rich Venetian culture, traditions and history.  The program is not geared toward any particular major, and students with no Italian language or art history background are eligible to apply.

Come hear faculty members from both departments speak about their course offerings as well as meet past participants from the program!

How to View Your Position on a Waitlist

Reminder: when registration begins, you may be initially waitlisted for some classes -- don't panic! Faculty are managing these waiting lists and letting students in as quickly as possible.

To view your position on a waitlist for a course, you’ll need to log into SSOL (Student Services Online) using your Columbia UNI and password.

Once you log into SSOL, click on the “Registration” link on the home screen under the Academic Records section of the Your Data tab.

From there, click the “Continue with Spring 2018 Registration” button on the following screen.

You will be taken to a screen with both classes you are currently registered for and classes you are on the waitlist for. On SSOL, classes under the “Spring 2018 classes” refer to classes you are registered for and classes under the “Spring 2018 Wish List” refer to classes you’re on the waitlist for.

When you’re on the waitlist for a class, SSOL will tell you either your position on the waitlist or it will say “Pending Approval”.

If a class gives you your position on the waitlist, this indicates that the waitlist is automatic. This means that the waitlist for the class is managed by the online registration services. If a person drops the class, the student who is in position 1 on the waitlist will automatically be added to the class.

If a course says “Pending Approval” under the waitlist, this means that the professor for the course is self-managing the waiting list. Rather than students automatically getting into the class from the waitlist, the professor is individually reviewing students for admission into the class.
