    S but my undergraduate degree in a country where English is not spoken Do I still need to submit my TOEFL IELTS scores No in this case you do not need to submit your TOEFL IELTS scores as long as you will have completed your Master s degree before starting your Ph D at Columbia I have been working in the U S for many years and I am very fluent in English Do I still need to take the TOEFL or the IELTS exams Yes you do The TOEFL or IELTS exam is required for all applicants who have received their undergraduate degree in a country where English is not the official and spoken language unless they will have completed a Master s degree in the U S before starting their Ph D at Columbia Working in the U S does not exempt you from taking the TOEFL or IELTS exams Note that you must report your unofficial test score in the online application and also request that an official score report be sent directly to Columbia University as specified in the Test Scores section of the online application The unofficial scores will be verified against your official scores TOEFL and IELTS scores are valid for two years We cannot accept old scores so please do not request an exception Only two groups of applicants may be exempted from this requirement 1 applicants who have applied to any Columbia FFSEAS Computer Science graduate program in the last year and 2 current Columbia FFSEAS graduate students If you are in groups 1 or 2 and have submitted official scores to Columbia in the past there is no need to send your official score report again as long as your test score is still valid as of the application deadline Note that you still must enter the score yourself in your online application If your test score expires before the application deadline then you must retake the exam We cannot make exceptions to this rule I am an international student Should I take the TSE and TWE tests No we do not require these exams You do not need to take the TSE and TWE tests GRADES AND TRANSCRIPTS My transcripts are not in English What should I do Materials that are not in English must be translated by an official and notarized transcription agency You must find such agencies yourself we cannot provide referrals unfortunately My course grades are based on a different grading scale from Columbia s How can I determine my GPA Several agencies provide grade translation services You must find such services yourself we cannot provide referrals unfortunately As a reference here is the key for our grading system Letter Grades and Numerical Equivalents A A A B B B C C C D D D F 4 00 3 67 3 33 3 00 2 67 2 33 2 00 1 67 1 33 1 00 0 67 0 00 APPLICATION STATUS AND DECISIONS ON ADMISSION How can I verify that my official transcripts GRE General and Subject exams and or TOEFL IELTS scores have been received All official transcripts GRE exam scores and TOEFL IELTS scores for all graduate programs in the School of Engineering are sent to the Office of Graduate Student Affairs You may contact them at to confirm receipt of your documents The staff will respond to your requests to check the receipt of application materials whenever possible Please be aware that during peak periods when the volume of inquiries is high the Office of Graduate Student Affairs might not be able to answer your requests However if additional materials are needed for your application you will be contacted by email When will I receive a decision on my application Can you tell me the status of my application Has a decision been made Please let me know now since I have been accepted to a few other universities but Columbia is my top choice Unfortunately Ph D admissions staff cannot answer these questions As soon as a decision is made you will be notified by email to the address that you specified in your online application If I have been denied admission may I receive feedback on the reasons behind this decision Unfortunately the volume of applications that we receive every year makes it impossible for us a to admit all of the highly qualified persons who apply to our Ph D program or b to provide specific feedback on our decisions We understand that the application process is extremely stressful and we deeply regret that we cannot provide specific reasons why individual applicants were not accepted into the program M S VS PH D PROGRAMS What is the relationship between the M S and the Ph D programs They are completely independent programs with separate admissions one does not lead to the other Some students complete the terminal M S program first and then apply to the Ph D program some students enter the Ph D program directly without an M S degree other students complete their M S degree at some other institution prior to enrolling in our Ph D program Some students leave after completing the M S program In the application form you ask whether I would consider admission to the M S program if I am denied admission to the Ph D program If I answer yes and attend your M S program does this mean that after getting my M S degree I would be able to continue with my Ph D Not necessarily After completing your M S degree you would still have to apply again to the Ph D program You cannot automatically transfer from the M S program to the Ph D program I applied to the Ph D program but have just received a notice saying I have been admitted to the M S program What does this mean I did not apply to the M S program This means you
