Prepayment of Tuition

Graduate Programs Only

Graduate students and families can prepay graduate tuition for the next two, three or four years at Columbia University, depending on the length of their program. Participants remain subject to the normal increases of tuition and fees, which, for the purposes of this agreement, are estimated at 4%. Room, board, health insurance, and other miscellaneous charges, as well as any differential between estimated and actual charges, remain the responsibility of the student.
