Admitted Students



Enrollment Next Steps

Business Edge students at Columbia University have access to a dedicated Academic Advisor who can guide them through many aspects of their time at Columbia University, but our first role is to help you register for classes. All admitted students must register for the Business Edge course after receiving their admissions letter, following the steps below. Please note: admission to the Business Edge program does not automatically register you for the course.



1. Enrollment Confirmation

In order to secure a place in the program you must complete the enrollment form within the online application system and submit your tuition deposit, if applicable. 

Please email with the details of your situation and we will review your request.

2. Submit Health Immunization Requirements

New York State Law requires that all students, regardless of credit options or course modality selection, document their immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella. To do so, you must submit the Columbia University Measles, Mumps, and Rubella form to the Columbia Health Immunization Compliance Office and confirm your Meningococcal Meningitis decision online.

We encourage students to take action on this requirement as soon as possible, as it can take up to 10 business days for processing.


3. Activate your University ID (UNI) and Email (LionMail) Account

Your UNI is created three to five business days after confirming your enrollment. To activate your UNI, click the “Activate Your UNI or LionMail Account” option on the Manage My UNI page. If you are unable to look up your UNI using the available search tool and more than five business days have passed, please contact

Use your UNI and password to ensure it is functioning properly. All University communications including bills will be sent to your LionMail account.
