About the Program
Visiting undergraduate, graduate, and high school students with qualifying academic records are welcome to study on a nondegree basis at Columbia through the School of Continuing Education during the academic year and summer.
Studying at Columbia during the academic year or summer offers access to hundreds of credit-bearing, challenging academic courses across all of the departments of the Arts and Sciences, taught by Columbia's eminent faculty. Visiting students study with matriculated Columbia graduate and undergraduate students and are granted the use of the University's resources, including the libraries and athletic facilities. The School of Continuing Education's Office of Student Affairs provides visiting students with guidance and academic advising and helps them navigate the University.
