A Message to Transfer Students

The core sequence of Fiction Writing program classes generally takes six semesters to complete. However, transfer students who have finished two full years of academic work at another accredited institution and who are able to apply previous coursework to the satisfaction of all or most LAS core requirements at Columbia can develop a program in consultation with their departmental and academic advisors that enables completion of the undergraduate BA in Fiction Writing or BA in Playwriting degree programs in two years. Those students who apply for and are accepted into BFA programs may expect to take at least one additional year beyond the time needed to satisfy BA requirements
