To create an application, scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Create an account" if you're a first-time user, or "Log in" if you're a returning user.  Once you create an account, you'll be provided instructions for completing your application to SIPA. For your reference, deadlines to all of SIPA's master's degree programs are included below. Please ensure all of your materials are submitted by the deadline in order to be considered for admission.

    Applicants must submit all materials directly, not through an agent or third-party vendor, with the sole exception of submissions by the U.S. Department of State’s Fulbright Program and its three partner agencies IIE, LASPAU and AMIDEAST, and by the Danish-American Fulbright Commission (DAF), Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), and Vietnam Education Fund (VEF).

    In addition, the applicant will be required to attest to the accuracy and authenticity of all information and documents submitted to Columbia. If you have any questions about this requirement, please contact the admissions office at sipa_admission@columbia.edu.
