Admissions

Students who wish to be considered for admission to the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program must be enrolled in an approved degree program at City University of Hong Kong. For more information about admissions to CityU, visit the website.

The admissions process includes a review of the applicant’s academic history, letters of recommendation, official test scores, a personal essay, and an interview conducted in English. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of admissions representatives from Columbia University.

Applicants may not simultaneously apply to the School of General Studies and to any other undergraduate division of Columbia University – Columbia College (CC), or The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) – nor are candidates eligible to apply to the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program if in the last three years they applied to either of these divisions and were not accepted.
