Visiting students may take advantage of most of the programs and activities available to Columbia Engineering students. They have an advising dean through the Center for Student Advising who assists with course selection and connects them with campus resources. In addition, they may take advantage of certain resources through the Center for Career Education (such as career fairs, workshops and panels, and networking nights) with the exceptions of on-campus recruiting, the national and international internship programs, and individual counseling. Visiting students can participate in any extra-curricular organization with the exception of our Division I athletic teams.
Housing is not guaranteed for Visiting Students, although we will try our best to accommodate students who indicate a desire to live on campus. Admitted students will be notified at the time of admission if they will receive housing.
