Ready for what's next?Apply for 2018
Students transfer to Columbia from all over the world, bringing along their unique experiences, talents, and aspirations. What will you add to our wildly creative and inclusive student body? We’re excited to see.
Apply as a transfer student if you’ve completed high school, home school, or a GED and have enrolled in at least 1 credit hour at a postsecondary college or university. This excludes dual enrollments, courses taken at Columbia College Chicago, and/or any postsecondary enrollment during the summer immediately following secondary school graduation or GED completion.
Columbia operates on rolling admissions, admitting students beginning in early fall. We make admissions decisions within four weeks of receiving a complete application file.
