To re-enroll as a Columbia student:
1. Submit a returning student application.
Spring applicants: Tuesday, January 18, 2022
Fall applicants: Monday, August 29, 2022
2. Submit your transcripts.
If you attended any college or university since you last enrolled at Columbia, you must submit official transcripts.
Ask your institution(s) to send official transcripts to Columbia College Chicago Admissions at 600 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60605. All transcripts received by mail or in person must be in the original sealed envelope from the school.
We also accept transcripts—when sent directly from the institution—via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Meet with an advisor.
After submitting your application, meet with a college advisor in the College Advising Center to discuss changes in graduation requirements, your academic history, and course selection.
Your college advisor will discuss the steps necessary to register and provide assistance on using MyColumbia, our student portal, for course registration. Appointments are required, so plan ahead. You may also need to speak with a faculty member in your major before you can register.
