Visiting and Exchange Students

Columbia University welcomes Visiting and Exchange Students from undergraduate institutions across the country and across the world.  Bringing a diversity of experiences and perspectives, Visiting and Exchange Students enrich the cultural and intellectual landscape of our community. 

The Center for Student Advising recognizes the unique experiences and challenges faced by Visiting and Exchange Students; they must quickly acclimate to a new environment, navigate a new system, and integrate into a new community.  Toward this end, the Center for Student Advising provides a variety of programs and services for Visiting and Exchange Students enrolled in one of the following programs:
