    Application Management

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

    2023 degree, advanced certificate, and non-degree applications are now open for Spring, Summer, and Fall. Please note that we are no longer accepting 2022 degree, advanced certificate, and non-degree applications.

    Teachers College reviews applications for Spring, Summer, and Fall entry. However, not all programs or degree levels are available for all entry terms. Applicants may only have one active application at a time, and may only apply to one degree program per Spring term and one degree program per Summer/Fall term.

    Please note that 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.
