Early Decision Deadline Update for Impacted Applicants

Given the destruction and disruption that many communities in Southern California and North Texas are facing due to this fall's wildfires and tornadoes, we will extend our Early Decision deadline to Sunday, November 10, 2019, for any Columbia College or Columbia Engineering applicants from affected areas who could benefit from additional time.

Additionally, students affected by the teachers strike in Chicago Public Schools are encouraged to complete their application on time. However, we will accept supporting documentation from their school after November 1 without the need for counselors or teachers to request a deadline extension.

We hope this flexibility helps to relieve some of the stress and anxiety students, families and educators might be feeling. We want to assure you that we are committed to working with students who wish to apply to Columbia.
