Projected increases in tuition are determined by the Board of Trustees of Columbia University in June, therefore, for planning purposes, a three percent increase should be anticipated each year. Billed expenses are subject to change without prior notice. Changes to a student’s program or course load may result in additional tuition charges and fees.
