“There is a self depreciation course starting at my college next term. I’ve already put myself down”

“I put myself down (for a college course)” means to sign up for a course. It doesn’t mean literally putting one’s self down, but there are jokes.

“The self-deprecation society is taking applications for new members. I’ve already put myself down” and “The self-depreciation society is taking applications for new members. I’ve already put myself down” are similar jokes, using both “self-deprecation” and “self-depreciation.”
             
       
Wikipedia: Self-deprecation
Self-deprecation, or self-depreciation, is the act of reprimanding oneself by belittling, undervaluing, disparaging oneself, or being excessively modest. It can be used as a way to make complaints, express modesty, invoke optimal reactions or add humour. It may also be used as a way for individuals to appear more likable and agreeable.
