The add/drop period is Monday, August 31st through Friday, September 18th.

The registration portal will be available daily, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The School of Social Work has decided to offer its coursework primarily online, with a selection of key courses offered in-person, which will be clearly designated as such in the online directory of classes. This hybrid instructional approach gives greater flexibility to our MSW and PhD students as they pursue their studies this fall. To this end, CSSW will implement two familiar online platforms, Zoom and Adobe Connect. Additionally, students in the New York City area will be able to engage in on-the-ground research and volunteer opportunities whenever possible and safe, consistent with the latest public health guidance.

Please review the document attached for important information regarding registration and more details for the fall term.

All students are able to register via SSOL during their assigned appointment times, using their UNI and password to log into the system. Students are assigned a “Registration Appointment” in order to register for classes each semester via Student Services Online (SSOL).

As you prepare for registration, please keep in mind:

  • Ultimately, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you are enrolling in all of the classes needed to fulfill your degree requirements. If you are having trouble navigating the study plans, please reach out to your advisor or make an appointment with the Office of Advising.
  • The Degree Audit Report (DARS) accessible via SSOL is INACCURATE. There have been a number of recent curricular changes that are not reflected in its evaluation of your coursework. We apologize for the inconvenience. The Office of Student Services conducts audits of all student records and is sure to notify students of any issues prior to graduation.
  • The Fall 2020 Directory of Classes (DOC) is in the process of being updated. Please check it regularly for changes.
  • Students will be able to use the waitlist feature for the possibility to join courses that are full and may be automatically admitted from the waitlist as space becomes available. Once a student has been admitted to the course, they will be notified that course registration has been successful and will be removed from the waitlist for that course. Students should navigate the waitlist closely to prevent being double enrolled.
  • Please note, course sections designated by the letter ‘D’ in the Section number will be taught via Adobe Connect, while residential courses will be taught via Zoom.
  • Faculty CANNOT authorize your enrollment into a course that is full under ANY circumstances. In other words, prior faculty approval does not permit you to be over-enrolled in a course that has reached its maximum enrollment.
  • Courses taken outside of CSSW to satisfy a minor or to count for elective credit must be first approved by the Office of Student Services via submission of the Cross-Registration Course Approval Form. Not all graduate-level courses offered at other CU schools are deemed appropriate as CSSW electives or minor courses. Information regarding cross-registration for the spring term will be forthcoming.
  • Any questions regarding the curriculum of a partner school should be directed to our counterparts in those offices.
  • You can view the LMSW & LCSW Information guide for courses approved for clinical licensure.
  • You may always consult with your academic advisor or staff in the Office of Advising to carefully review the information and resources below. NOTE: The registration system only will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. (closed on weekends) during the add/drop periods.
  • The Office of Student Services will be conducting reviews prior to the add/drop period to ensure that students are registered appropriately. Students will be removed from any and all courses for which they are ineligible. This includes being dropped from duplicate classes as a result of the wait list.

Please check back for updated information.


The Course Directory is subject to change until the first day of classes. Please check course listings frequently. To view course listings for previous semesters, please visit the Registration Documents section of the Forms & Documents Library.
