The Money Part
Fridays, by appointment only
It’s not the most fun part to talk about—but it’s the most beneficial conversation to have. We know financing your education isn’t easy, and our team is here to help. Meet with a Columbia representative to discuss ways to finance your education as well as your eligibility for all possible scholarships.
Appointments are available between January 2019 and May 2019, and available dates will be posted in December.
