Solving Minimum Cost Network Flow problems

I'm trying to solve a Minimum Cost Network Flow problem (for assigning students to their preferred classes).  I've tried GIDEN (http://users.iems.northwestern.edu/~giden/) but the software isn't great.  Does anyone know of other options?

Do you want to write the algorithm yourself? Or a software that solve your problem?

I'd much rather software that solves the problem.  The input data is rather large (~300 people) and I think it would be easier to input the values into a program rather than write it myself.

Can you please describe your student assigning problem more clearly here? Maybe there're alternatives.

I need to have the students choose an elective.  There is a maximum number of students allowed to take each elective, and the students rank their choices from 1-5.  I want to optimize their choices with the class-size constraint.
