Tuition & Fees
In order to secure a place in the program, admitted students must pay a nonrefundable deposit of $2,000 to the university by the deadline stated in the acceptance letter. The deposit is credited toward the student's tuition upon matriculation. Under no circumstances can the acceptance deposit be waived. Students who fail to submit their deposit by the deadline forfeit their place in the entering class. Students who make deposits but do not enroll on the agreed date lose their deposits.
Students will be responsible for purchasing a laptop computer to use throughout this program.
Domestic students are required to participate in the residencies on Columbia’s campus in New York City*. Students are responsible for covering their travel and lodging expenses for the duration of the required residencies.
International students are welcome to attend the in-person residencies. An online version of the residencies is available for international students who cannot attend in person.
*Due to COVID-19, in-person residencies may be postponed, virtual or canceled.
Tuition and fees may be subject to change annually and are approved by the Board of Trustees each spring. Students are responsible for the purchase of books and course materials.
