Columbia College

Columbia College is the Ivy League school on Broadway. As a small College in a large research university, it offers a wide range of majors, a nationally known Core Curriculum, an international city as an extended classroom, and a residential experience designed to enable students to learn extensively from each other. Assisted by its need-blind admissions and full-need financial aid policies, the College enrolls one of the most diverse student bodies among its peers. Since 1754, Columbia’s original school has been graduating students who are recognized for their independent voices, creative imaginations, civic concerns, leadership capacities, urban expertise, and adaptable skills. Through Campaign gifts supporting financial aid, student programs, faculty projects, donors will renew that tradition for generations to come.

The College Fund
Support for financial aid, student services, and the Core Curriculum—areas that directly affect the lives of undergraduate students—maintain Columbia College’s distinctive strengths and help retain its position as a global leader in higher education.

Your gift can be allocated by the College to the area of greatest immediate need, or designated for financial aid, student affairs, the Core Curriculum, internships, or the Parents Fund. Alumni, parents and friends may join the John Jay Associates with a gift of $1,500 or more, while gifts of $25,000 or more bring membership in the Dean’s Circle.
