All students must submit one transcript showing courses and grades per school attended, a statement of academic purpose, three letters of evaluation from academic sources, and a resume.
We are not accepting GRE scores for the 2022-2023 admissions cycle.
We understand that successful students come from widely varying backgrounds and our review process considers the context of each applicant’s record. No negative assumptions will be drawn if GRE scores are not included with applications.
International students may be required to submit evidence of English language proficiency. See the International Students page on the GSAS Admissions website for more information. Applicants with questions about Columbia’s English language proficiency requirement, can reach out directly to our Admissions staff at [email protected].
For more information, refer to The Columbia Graduate School for Arts and Sciences Admissions Information and Frequently Asked Questions, as well as our departmental admissions FAQ.
