New Student Programs

New Parent Guide

The Office of New Student Programs exists to facilitate everyone's transition to the Columbia community. Most of the time that means new students, but we're also here for parents and families with questions, concerns, hopes, fears, plans, and any and all issues. Becoming a new student at the largest arts & media college in the country is a big transition and we're here to help. 

We're always available to answer your questions, big or small. Email us. Call us. Come on by. Let's work together to make sure your student has a great first year that sets them up for the best possible college experience.
