Virtual Visit Programming for Winter and Spring 2021

Columbia Undergraduate Admissions and the Visitors Center have expanded Virtual Visit programming for Winter and Spring 2021. From your couch or your car, from a family computer or a phone, you'll be able to connect with our community to learn about what makes Columbia University a place unlike any other. We invite prospective students and families to learn more about our virtual information sessions, student panels and Q&A chats.

One-Year Extension of Test-Optional Admissions for 2021-2022

In response to continued disruptions to standardized testing availability due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia is extending our test-optional policy for one year, effective for first-year applicants to Columbia College or Columbia Engineering for the fall of 2022. 

Regular Decision Release Information

The joint notification date for the Ivy League this year will be Tuesday, April 6, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. Due to an increase in applications and our continued commitment to our holistic review process, this change allows us to most effectively and carefully consider each student who has applied.
