The 4-1 Program at Columbia College

Students who are admitted as first-year students to Columbia Engineering, and subsequently complete the four-year program for the Bachelor of Science degree, have the opportunity to apply for admission to either Columbia College or Barnard College and, after one additional year of study, receive the Bachelor of Arts degree.

The program will be selective, and admission will be based on the following factors: granting of the B.S. at Columbia Engineering at the end of the fourth year; fulfillment of the College Core requirements by the end of the fourth year at the School; a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the College Core and other courses; and the successful completion of any prerequisites for the College major or concentration. To be admitted to the program, a plan needs to be in place for the student to complete the major or concentration by the end of their fifth year.

Interested students should contact their advising dean for further information.
