Due to COVID-19, some Consortium schools have suspended on-campus participation in IUDC courses for the Spring 2021 semester. Students who wish to participate in Spring 2021 courses at Columbia may only register for courses offered entirely online or via remote access. Columbia students should inquire with the host school regarding the allowed participation format.
Consortium approvals for the spring will begin December 7, 2020.
The Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC) provides eligible Arts and Sciences doctoral students the opportunity to cross-register for graduate-level courses at member schools.
PhD students in good academic standing, in registration years two through seven in eligible Arts and Sciences doctoral programs (listed under “PhD and DMA Programs”), are able to participate in the IUDC.
First-year PhD students are not eligible to participate in the consortium.
Master’s students are not eligible to participate in the consortium.
Spring 2021 IUDC registration for all students will begin on December 7, 2020.
All students must submit Columbia’s online IUDC application by Friday, January 29, 2021 to be registered for the spring semester.
