During the week prior to the New Student Orientation Program, first-year Columbia College and Columbia Engineering students may apply to participate in one of our three pre-orientation programs:
- Columbia Outdoor Orientation Program (COÖP - pronounced "coh-op")
- Columbia Urban Experience (CUE)*
- International Student Orientation Program (ISOP)
All programs are amazing opportunities to meet other first-year students and share in a common experience.
Columbia College and Columbia Engineering students may apply to any or all of the Columbia pre-orientation programs. *Barnard College students may apply to CUE and can learn more through the Barnard Student Life website.
Please know that financial aid opportunities are available for those who qualify for financial aid from their school.
The application for the pre-orientation programs will be available on this page beginning Monday, April 2, 2018 through Friday, May 18, 2018. If you are student that has come off the waitlist after Friday, May 18th, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about applying to one of the programs.
Applications for ISOP will continue on a rolling basis and can be found here. Applications received after May 18, 2018 are not eligible for financial aid.
