Joint Program student Sydney Sperling discusses the List College application process:
Those interested in the Joint Program should submit a completed application to the List College Admissions Office. List College only accepts the Common Application, in addition to which students must submit the List College application supplement. List College will then distribute the application to Columbia, and the schools will make a joint decision. An application consists of:
Interviews are not required but are highly encouraged. To schedule an interview, contact the List College Admissions Office at (212) 678-8832.
*Students may not apply to Columbia College or SEAS School of Engineering and the Joint Program.
In addition, they must acquire Barnard's application and submit it to Barnard in its entirety. A Barnard application may be obtained by calling (212) 854-2014 or visiting Barnard online.
Candidates applying early decision to the Double Degree Program must only check early decision on the supplement (part two) for the application to List College and in part one and part two on the Barnard application.
Decisions on applications to the Double Degree Program are made by the admissions committees of both schools. Women can and are encouraged to apply to both the Joint Program and the Double Degree Program.
An applicant who has studied at another college or university and wishes to transfer to List College must follow the admissions procedures previously outlined. In addition, candidates must submit a current official transcript.
Students must take at least 48 of the 96 Judaica credits required for graduation from List College in residence. In addition, a student must complete 60 credits of general liberal arts at an accredited college or university.
Students who wish to transfer to List College with fewer than sixty liberal arts credits may transfer to the Joint Program with Columbia University or the Double Degree Program with Barnard College, or they may complete the remaining liberal arts credits at an accredited college or university of their choice.
Transfer student Josh Micley discusses what brought him to List College:
Spending a year in Israel between high school and college is a wonderful opportunity to have an experience that is both educational and personally meaningful. If you plan ahead and stay in touch with us, you may also earn up to a semester's worth of credit that will help you "hit the ground running" when you begin your studies at List College.
Students who wish to take courses for credit but do not intend to earn a degree may be admitted as nonmatriculated students. Students currently in good standing at other accredited colleges and universities who wish to simultaneously enroll in List College on a nonmatriculating basis need to submit only an application, a current transcript, and the application fee.
Applications for nonmatriculated students who are not currently enrolled in another college or university must follow the standard application procedure.
