Courses at The GSAPP
Some Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, & Preservation (GSAPP) courses are open to undergraduate students. Typically, these courses are only recommended for students at an advanced level within the architecture major. Cross-registration for GSAPP courses always takes place during the Change of Program period (the first and second week of classes). On the first day of classes, the GSAPP Office of Student Affairs will provide a list of courses that they have approved for cross-registration. That list will be published here on the GSAPP website.
If you are interested in taking a course that does not appear on the list of approved courses, you may proceed with the following registration steps but even if the instructor has granted you permission to take their course, the Office of Student Affairs at the GSAPP may deny your request.
Instructions for Architecture Majors:
1. Email the GSAPP instructor and confirm that you are eligible to take their course.
2. Email your architecture faculty advisor to discuss the GSAPP course you would like to take. If possible, provide a copy of the syllabus and ask them how it could count towards your major requirements (if at all).
3. After you have the permission of both the GSAPP instructor and your major advisor, follow these instructions from The Office of Student Affairs at GSAPP. You will be required to fill out their online Add/Drop form.
4. If you are a student at Columbia College or the School of General Studies, the GSAPP Office of Student Affairs will process your form and help you add the course to your schedule online. If you are a Barnard College student, you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of the completed Add/Drop form and request their help officially adding the course to your schedule.
You are also welcome to email your questions to email@example.com.
