Tuition and Financial Aid

Neighborhood Families

The School at Columbia University is fully committed to making it possible for all families to afford to enroll their children. To apply for aid, families must provide financial information to Tuition Aid Data Services, or TADS, an independent financial aid servicing organization. All families are required to file federal tax forms in order to be eligible for financial aid.

Because financial aid grants are only valid for one year, all families must apply for financial aid each year. Please find important forms and information below.

Families complete their financial aid applications online at If a family is not able to complete the application online, they may request a paper application, or come to school to complete the application online.
