Program Policies

Withdrawal from the Dual BA Program

All students enrolled in the Dual BA Program are expected to make sufficient academic progress and to fulfill all academic obligations required by both institutions in order to obtain two diplomas.

In very rare circumstances, students enrolled in the Dual BA Program may seek to leave the Program to pursue alternative academic opportunities. Students who wish to leave the Dual BA Program prior to completion are not automatically entitled to enter the undergraduate programs of either Columbia University or Trinity College Dublin. Therefore, it is advised that students consult with their academic advisors at both Trinity and Columbia as early as possible.

Neither Columbia nor Trinity guarantees the transferability of credits completed within the Dual BA Program into another program offered by either institution.

Should a student decide to leave the Dual BA Program to join Columbia University, he or she must re-submit an application for admission in accordance with all rules and regulations established by Columbia University’s Office of Admissions.
