Information for International Students Matriculating at Columbia University Fall 2012

For the last several summers Student Affairs has coordinated our Summer Advising Programs for newly-admitted undergraduates with the University-wide receptions hosted by the Columbia Alumni Association in a number of cities throughout Asia.   Because many graduate students attend these events and see our “Student Affairs” titles, we are often asked questions which, unfortunately, we cannot answer.
