To be admissible to an academic program (University Transfer or University Foundation program) at Columbia College, you must:
- meet the college’s academic requirements for entrance
- demonstrate English ability
- be at least 15½ years old on starting studies
If you do not meet the minimum English language requirements for your program, you may instead register in a program combining academic studies with non-credit coursework in English, or in the College's Academic English as a second language program.
