Columbia University offers several programs for tuition, both at and outside of the University.
AT COLUMBIA: The Tuition Exemption Benefit Program is offered for both Officers and Support Staff, so that you and your family members may take courses at Columbia.
AT OTHER COLLEGES: College Tuition Scholarships for Officers' children can help offset the costs of college tuition outside Columbia.
AT PRIMARY SCHOOLS: Primary Tuition Scholarships for Officers' children can help offset the costs of primary schools.
Some collective bargaining units offer additional tuition benefits for their members; please see Union Contracts for more information.
Please note the Spring 2013 deadlines for submitting paperwork to the school office, listed on the Student Financial Services website.
