All students are welcome to attend the Transfer and Combined Plan Dean’s Welcome for the purpose of celebrating your arrival at Columbia. Families and loved ones are invited to attend the ceremony with their incoming students. 

The ceremony will be held on Low Plaza and will feature remarks from senior leaders of Columbia College and Columbia Engineering. The 2024 welcome event will be held on August 27, 2024.

Building Community

NSOP programming for transfer and combined plan students will include an introduction to academic and wellness resources, as well as the Columbia and New York City communities. 

The NSOP schedule will go live in mid August. Orientation Leaders will reach out for an introductory email in early August. Look out for their message!


Countdown to Columbia

In early July, check the Countdown to Columbia website for your to-do list for move-in, orientation, and the start of classes. You'll be able to explore the site for information, resources, and ways to engage with your new community.

In the meantime, check out the Summer Send-off homepage to see if there's an event in your area. These local gatherings bring together Columbia alumni and current students to welcome incoming students and families to the Columbia Community.
