SEAS New Graduate Student Check List
The School of Engineering has created a student check list for incoming students. It is a great resource, so please read it through carefully as it will most likely answer many of the questions you may have.
MICE is a web-based database system for departmental records of various sorts. Your MICE account will be created by the beginning of January, and once it is created, you will receive an email from the MICE system. Please note that MICE is only available on Columbia's network, so to access MICE off-campus, please follow these instructions (Go to HOWTO --> Proxy Connection to Columbia Network MICE) to set up the proxy server.
Additionally, please check our MICE User Manual for information.
Student Services Online
Student Services Online is also known as SSOL. You will use SSOL to register for classes, request transcript, and view your billing information. Please note that you can only register for classes through SSOL, not through MICE.
Registration for Spring 2016 courses will be from January 12-15, 2016. You will use SSOL to register for classes. In order to register for courses on time, you must submit your MMR immunization records 30 days before course registration. Please make sure to send your records to the health services by the deadline. For immunization-related questions, please contact Columbia's Health Services.
Each track has an advisor or advisors. After you select a track, you will be assigned an advisor in MICE.
Masters Program Requirements
A brief description of each of the MS tracks can be found in this document.
Importing courses taken at your previous institution
You will see instructions in the MICE User Manual, but you do not need to do this just yet. We will send you an updated information via email.
