Campus Visits

Our campus visits are cancelled through April 30, and our schedule of campus visits begins on May 1. At the moment, we are hoping to be able to resume campus visits and events in May, but the situation is obviously very fluid, and we may adjust those plans based on new information.

Thanks for your interest in Columbia! We offer two types of visits every week.
  • Campus Tours, offered daily and led by student ambassadors, provide an overview of our campus and facilities in an academic area of your interest.
  • Academic Department Visits on Mondays and Fridays, provide an in-depth look at a specific academic department and its programs of study. 
Read more about each visit type and register using the calendar below.
