The First Year

The First Year

Students who have confirmed their intent to enroll in the Dual BA Program and submitted their tuition deposits by May 1 will be assigned a Columbia University University Network ID (UNI) and a Sciences Po Student ID Number. This ID number allows students to activate their Sciences Po Student Space, access their Certificat de Scolarité, and begin the administrative registration process.

Certificat de Scolarité

The Certificat de Scolarité is issued by the main Sciences Po administrative offices in Paris during the first week of May, after all incoming students have confirmed their intent to enroll in the Dual BA Program. This document is the one that must be used to fulfill the “acceptance letter” requirement for obtaining a student visa, as it includes the beginning and end dates of students' terms in France as well as the relevant campus address.
