Admission & Aid

    Application Management

    Thank you for your interest in applying to Teachers College, Columbia University!

    The 2024 application is now closed. The 2025 application will open in September.

    Once you create an account, you will need to use the same email and password to log into the application system. Please do not create multiple accounts using different email addresses.

    Teachers College reviews applications for Spring, Summer, and Fall entry. However, not all programs or degree levels are available for all entry terms. Applications must be for an available entry term (based on program and degree level of interest) in order to be considered for admission. Applicants may only have one active application at a time, and may only apply to one degree program per cycle. You will be able to review available entry terms for your program and degree level of interest after clicking on the “Start New Application” link below.

    Please note that our application system will not allow applicants to successfully submit an application for admission if there are multiple applications on file for the same cycle. If you started an application for the wrong term for the current cycle, do not begin a new application. If you wish to have your current in-progress (2024) application shifted to the proper term, please contact the Office of Admission at for assistance.

    The restriction noted above does not apply to applications on file from a previous cycle (i.e., those with a 2023 application on file can proceed with starting a new application for 2024). 

    Students may not be enrolled concurrently in two different institutions and may not be in two different degree programs or areas of specializations at Teachers College or Columbia University.

    International Applicants
