How and when do P&S students register for electives?

Please note the following timeline for P&S student registration when considering your rosters. Electives that operate a waiting list in OASIS and require prior approval are not included in the lottery by default. Visiting students can apply for eligible electives after each lottery, and are not placed until 6 weeks prior to the rotation start date.

Between lotteries, P&S students can add/drop their courses up until 4 weeks prior to the start date, and OASIS will now lock out changes at the 28 day mark. More information on our Four Week Policy can be found on the P&S website, http://ps.columbia.edu/education/curriculum/medical-school-curriculum/differentiation-integration-di/elective-planning/policies-and-g.
