Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fee rates are set annually by the Teachers College Board of Trustees. In the 2013-2014 academic year, tuition for all regular courses is $1,344 per point. Non-credit courses vary in rate, usually depending on the minimum number of points for which the particular course is offered and the special services provided.

Columbia University's tuition is assessed at a per-point or flat rate determined annually by the University's Board of Trustees. Each school's rate may vary. Click here to see current tuition rates at Columbia and other affiliates.

Total tuition and fees are determined based on the number of points for which the student has registered. All tuition and fees (registration, service, workshops and all miscellaneous related expenses) charged are due and payable in full by the official published deadline date.
