Admissions Question

When your applying to the school, do you apply for scholarships at the same time or after you get in?

You may apply for scholarships before being admitted to Columbia - Each scholarship has it’s own criteria and application guidelines.

To help guide you through the scholarship process, we’ve created a Scholarship Finder which enables you to enter your profile to see which Columbia College scholarship you may qualify for in the upcoming year.

Admissions Question

I am really interested in attending Columbia. I was wondering if ACT scores really impact application?

Although the ACT or SAT is not required for admission to Columbia College Chicago, these tests are valuable tools for advising new students. In many cases, official ACT scores submitted at the time of application for admission may be used in lieu of Columbia’s required assessment test (see “Assessment of New Students”). All students are strongly encouraged to complete one of these tests while in high school for inclusion in their college applications.
