We are pleased to offer Virtual Information Sessions while our on-campus events are suspended. Sessions last one hour and are conducted by members of the Committee on Admissions and student leaders. The sessions offer you the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the Columbia undergraduate experience — Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, the Core Curriculum, New York City, research and internships, residential life, extracurricular activities, financial aid, requirements for admission, and other topics.
Guests will have the opportunity to connect with our student tour guide directly, have opportunities to ask questions and get to know the abundant offerings both campus and New York City have to offer. Curious about student life and want to hear directly from Columbia students?
Take this opportunity to chat and engage with current students and learn more about the many unique and special ways that Columbia fosters student community. Students who still have questions are also encouraged to connect with current Columbians at: askastudent columbia.
Groups of 10 or more have the opportunity to request a student-led information session that educates prospective students on college access broadly, and offers the chance to discuss their Columbia student experiences.
This visit is intended for community-based organizations and secondary schools that would like to learn more about the college search process.
