Course Registration Tips

Helpful Links

Having trouble getting into your courses?

Some academic departments temporarily restrict their courses at the start of the registration period.  CIC advisors do not have the authority to place you into restricted sections.  

If you're having trouble getting into a class you need, check the Course Information and Restrictions tabs in the course schedule posted in Self Service Carolina.

When will JOUR courses open to minors?

Most JOUR courses will be open to all Columbia campus students as soon as registration opens. However, pre-requisites will still be enforced, and there are some JOUR courses that will always be restricted to SJMC majors only.

You can check the restrictions of the class you're interested in taking by clicking on the course title and going to the Course Information and Restrictions tabs. 

Courses with Additional Applications

Students interested in joining the staff of TCA, please send your resume and writing samples (or portfolio) to Professor Grigg to schedule an interview. 

Students must identify and apply to at least one of TCA’s four divisions: Advertising, Creative, Public Relations or Research. For more info, visit or email
