How to Apply

At Columbia, we value connecting with prospective students and applicants. Thus, we strongly encourage all prospective students to schedule a time to connect with a member of the Columbia Admissions Team. While this conversation is not required, prospective students often share that their initial conversations with admissions team members were helpful in discerning the best next steps.

Once you have discerned which degree program will best support your academic and vocational formation, you are invited to begin the online application. The application process is 100% online and completed within the Columbia application portal. This allows applicants to begin, save, review, and update their application at their own pace. If you have questions about the application, please email or call +1 877-548-2817 Monday through Friday, 9:30 am – 5:30 pm ET.
