Columbia's tuition is expensive. How do students pay for it?

GS students may be eligible to receive scholarships, grants, loans, and/or work-study. Financial aid may come from institutional scholarships, federal and/or state governments, or private sources. Approximately 70 percent of all GS students receive some form of financial aid. Prospective students are encouraged to apply for financial aid when completing an admissions application and can find out more information by visiting the Educational Financing page.

Please note: Financial aid packages outlining the exact costs and availability of aid and scholarships are only generated for students who have been accepted to GS. Prospective students concerned about financial aid must go through the process of applying for admission, and upon potential acceptance, must ensure all of the correct financial aid forms are on file, so that a complete financial aid package can be generated for them. Unfortunately, until a student gains admission to GS, financial aid eligibility is indeterminable.
