The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is a member of the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC), which provides for cross-registration of graduate-level courses among member institutions. Participating schools are:
CUNY Graduate Center
Teachers College (TC) is also a member of the IUDC, but Columbia students interested in TC classes should cross-register within Columbia rather than use the IUDC.
MA students are not eligible for this program.
PhD students in years two through seven of Arts and Sciences programs (listed under “PhD and DMA programs”) are eligible to participate in IUDC. Students register at Columbia for the course(s) they plan to take at the visiting institution by submitting both the IUDC Registration Form and Columbia’s online IUDC application. The host institution may also require students to register there. Students should familiarize themselves with the academic regulations of the host university, including its location, grading system, applicable deadlines, and calendar.
Tuition is paid to the Graduate School. Classes may be taken for a grade and will appear on the Columbia transcript. Students will receive a letter or ID card allowing them library reading privileges at the host institution. Columbia students going to New York University may use their CUID card.
Courses taken in the IUDC must be taken for a grade (Pass/Fail is an option), not for R credit or Audit.
Note: IUDC is limited to fall and spring semesters. Summer session or intersession courses are not eligible for the IUDC.
