Classes

Classroom visitVisiting students can experience the academics at Columbia through class visits. A vast array of classes is available for prospective students to attend while visiting campus during the academic year.

Class visits for the Fall 2019 semester will begin on September 30. Class Visits will not be available on Monday, October 14th. Class Visits for the Fall 2019 Semester will conclude on November 22nd. 

Due to the small and intimate nature of the Core Curriculum, prospective students will not be able to visit Core classes. However, newly admitted students are invited in the spring to sample Core classes during our accepted student programs. 

If you are interested in visiting a class, you must first check in at the Visitors Center. After you have received approval to sit in on a class, you will receive a class visitation ticket. You must report to the class at least five minutes prior to the start time and you are expected to stay for the entire duration of the class. Please note that class visits are for prospective students only. Guests visiting campus along with a prospective student are unable to visit a class.
