Columbia meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of every admitted first-year student who has applied for financial aid, and continues to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for all four years of study. There is no official income limit for financial aid eligibility. Because eligibility for need-based financial aid is determined by many factors, including income, assets, family size and number of children in college, we encourage you to apply if you are at all concerned about your ability to pay.
Other Financial Aid Offices
The Office of Financial Aid and Educational Financing serves Columbia College undergraduates and Columbia Engineering students. Please see the Columbia Student Financial Services for links to offices in other schools.
