Enrollment Email

Dear Admitted Student, 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Summer Program for High School Students at Columbia University.

Here are the steps necessary to finalize your place in the program:

  1. Submit Your Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Record
    Columbia University requires that all students be up-to-date on their measles, mumps, and rubella vaccinations. Your family physician must complete this form for you. The form can be found here: http://assets.ce.columbia.edu/pdf/hsp/nyc/MMR-Form.pdf.

    When completed, this form should be mailed to:

    Wien Hall Room 108B
    411 West 116th Street, Mail Code 3712
    New York, NY  10027
  2. Activate Your UNI
    Your University Network Identification (UNI) is the identifier by which you can access computer and electronic resources at Columbia. You should activate your UNI as soon as you receive an activation link that will be sent to you by e-mail about a week after you submit your deposit.
  3. Request Your Columbia University ID Card
    The University ID card grants you access to the libraries, the student activities center, the physical fitness center, and various other campus resources, and enables you to take advantage of cultural discount programs throughout New York City.

    In order to obtain a University ID card, please submit a JPEG photo online to http://www.columbia.edu/cu/id/. The photo deadline for Session I and dual-session students is June 7. Students attending Session II exclusively must submit their photos by June 28. You will need your UNI to log into the secure site.

    The color photo must be passport-style: facing forward with your head and shoulders clearly visible. No photos with sunglasses or hats will be accepted.

    Students who have previously attended the Summer Programs for High School Students will need to obtain new ID cards.

    If you have been admitted to the program after the photo deadline, do not use the online system. You will obtain an ID card upon arrival on campus by taking a photo in person at the ID Center.
  4. Submit Final Tuition Payments to Student Financial Services
    For Session I and dual-session students, in early June Student Financial Services will send a complete invoice to your Columbia University e-mail address detailing the tuition and fees. Session II students will receive this correspondence in late June. You will be unable to make a payment other than the required $500 deposit until you receive this invoice. We will be providing additional information regarding billing and payment options in the next few weeks.

Much of the above information can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions and Enrolled Students section of the website, but we recommend that you use this e-mail to assist you in the enrollment process.

Completing the tasks above will ensure that you are fully prepared to attend the program. If you require further details, please refer to the online resources mentioned above.

We look forward to having you with us this summer!

Warm Regards,
