How to Apply

We encourage you to submit your transcripts electronically as part of your application for admission. Because our office is currently operating remotely, we are unable to check our mailbox for paper transcripts. Should you have concerns about potential delays in submitting your transcripts, please contact us at admission@tc.columbia.edu.

Teachers College has adopted a principle to ensure that no applicants are disadvantaged by policy decisions made by their colleges/universities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We believe in the power of educators to excite, inspire and advocate for positive change in our world. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of education leaders to meet the practice and policy challenges of the 21st century.

If you’re looking to make a difference in how learners of all backgrounds and circumstances grow and thrive, we have a program designed for you.
