After Registration

Pay Tuition and Fees

Columbia bills students for tuition, fees, and other charges at the beginning of each term. When a new Student Account Statement is generated, an email notification is sent directly to student’s Columbia email account and they can access their e-bill by logging into SSOL. The University does not mail paper bills so it’s important for students to check their Columbia e-mail.

Counselors in the Office of Student Financial Services, 210 Kent, are available to discuss payment options.

Students may refer to Financial Resources for information regarding loans, financial aid, and outside funding.

Columbia University reserves the right to withhold the privilege of registration, or any other University privilege, from any person with unpaid debt to the University.

Obtain a Columbia University ID

ID Center
204 Kent Hall

Students may obtain Columbia ID cards after completing the registration process. ID cards are required for use of the libraries and facilities of the University. ID cards may be needed for evening entrance to some campus buildings.

Columbia University ID cards also provide free admittance to many museums in New York City and discounts on purchases in many local establishments.
