Welcome to the course ballot for M.S. students.
Please carefully follow the instructions below.
First, M.S. students please read the Fall Curriculum thoroughly.
You may read students’ evaluations of many of the classes and professors at http://web.jrn.columbia.edu/students/view_evaluations.htm. You will have to log in using your UNI and password. Please note that some courses are being taught for the first time this fall. If you cannot find evaluations for a particular course, look instead for evaluations of other courses that professor has taught.
Please select the appropriate ballot for concentration/program. If you complete a ballot for a concentration/program other than your own, you will have your classes assigned randomly in the correct concentration/program.
Please note that if you began the program as a part-time student, you must ALWAYS use the part-time ballot even if you plan on accelerating to a full-time course load.
To complete the ballot you will need your Columbia e-mail address and PID (If you have lost your PID, please refer to http://deanstudents.blogsome.com/2005/11/14/faq-how-do-i-find-my-pid/)
The ballots are NOT handled on a first-come, first-served basis. As long as you make the deadline (Monday, July 11, 10 a.m.) you have equal standing with all other students.
NOTE: Ranking the same class as your first choice repeatedly DOES NOT increase your likelihood of getting into that class. Rather it means that we will randomly select your class if we are not able to give you your first choice.
If your ballot is received after the deadline, you will be placed in classes on a space available basis. If you made a mistake or changed your mind, please resubmit your ballot. Your most recently-submitted ballot as of the deadline (Monday, July 11, 10 a.m.) will be the one processed.
All full-time students will be automatically enrolled for RWI, Journalism Essentials, and the Master’s Project. The ballot includes questions to assist us in making those assignments. Stabile students will be automatically registered for the required Stabile skills course.
If you experience any problems using the ballot, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Please note we cannot promise students they will gain a seat in any specific class.
Please note that you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing the ballot information you submitted. You will have to look through it carefully to find what you entered as the response includes both the pages you were required to complete and those you weren’t based on type of ballot.
