Notice on Campus VisitsIn light of the evolving Covid-19 situation and the University’s guidelines for on-campus activity, Columbia University SPS Admissions has suspended all in-person campus visits for the Fall 2020 semester. We invite prospective students to drop by our daily virtual walk-in hours with general admissions questions or sign up for an appointment with an Admissions Counselor via the Contact link on each program’s webpage to discuss program-specific questions and application requirements. Admissions Counselors can connect you directly to students, alumni, faculty and facilitate virtual class visits. You can also register for a virtual information session. Our virtual events allow you to interact with our admissions staff and learn more about the Columbia SPS community. If you have any questions, please contact our office at inquire@sps.columbia.edu or 212-854-9666.
