Summer Session students

Complete only one course enrollment form, even if you're attending more than one session.

Fall/Spring Study students

Ask the course instructor(s) (or departments) to sign or stamp your form. The instructor determines if there is space in the class and if you have completed prerequisites, if any. The instructor's signature or department stamp indicates you have permission to enroll in the class. If the college registrar's approval is required for your course, you should obtain it at this step.

Cornell employees

Obtain the signatures of your supervisor and department head.
