Cross Registrants are students who are not admitted in the Business School program, but are taking Business School courses. Unfortunately, these students are not eligible for computer support or access to computing resources such as printing, classroom network connectivity or the Express Web Kiosks.
The vast majority of Business School courses utilize the Business School's Canvas system to manage and distribute course content via the web. Cross-registrant students can also access Canvas via the web using their UNI@columbia.edu address and a previously chosen password. A Business School network ID is not needed for this access. Non-Columbia Business School students without a CUNIX ID will need to contact their professors for access to Canvas.
If a professor requires students to use resources that are not web-based, or requires that all students be able to access the internet from within the classroom, non-Business School students will have to get exemptions to the restrictions placed on their access to the School's computing resources. In these cases, the professor needs to provide ITG Student Support with written authorization in order for students to gain access to resources like the registration of a laptop's Ethernet adapter. An e-mail can be sent by the faculty member to ITG Student Support (StuSup@gsb.columbia.edu) stating the resources needed and the reasons for the access. These resources will be given on a temporary basis until the fourth week of the term, at which point the students' enrollment will be verified. If the student is not enrolled at that point in time, the access will be removed.
