Pre-Arrival Tutorials

Welcome to Columbia!

Every student who is new to a degree program at Columbia must complete two required tutorials that introduce important university policies and valuable student resources. These tutorials convey values that are foundational to membership in the Columbia University community and provide skills and resources to help support you to excel during your time here. Both must be completed before your arrival on campus.

If you are a new student you must complete the tutorials even if you have previously done so while attending another school within Columbia University. 

Please use your UNI to sign in to each tutorial.

Tutorial 1: Welcome to Columbia
