Sciences Po

Students pay their Sciences Po tuition in either one lump sum for the academic year or four installments in June, December, February, and April. Payment is made via wire transfer to Sciences Po directly, and students will be asked to note their preferences as they complete the Sciences Po administration registration process over the summer.

For more information, see the Sciences Po website.


Enrolled students are billed by term. Students may view their account balance in Student Services Online (SSOL).

Payment for the term is due by the end of the University’s official Change of Program period, in accordance with the academic calendar (the end of the second week of classes for the spring and fall semesters; for summer, see the Columbia Summer website).

Charges incurred throughout the term will be billed periodically and are due by the date listed on the Student Account Statement, available in SSOL.

Payments are processed by Student Financial Services (SFS). Please visit the SFS website for specific information on payment options. For more information on tuition and fee policies, visit the School of General Studies website
