Columbia University School of General Studies (GS) is the only college of its kind created to meet the needs of returning and nontraditional students.

You’ll participate in collaborative research projects with leading scholars, benefit from one-on-one academic advising and tutoring, and engage with classmates who are some of the brightest minds in the world. The School of General Studies offers an outstanding education that will exceed your expectations.
Why They Value Veterans
Across Columbia's 17 schools, U.S. military veterans play an integral part in the student life, academic endeavors, and intellectual accomplishments of the University. With almost 700 student-veterans, Columbia has established itself as a leader in the Ivy League in recruiting students with military experience and ensuring they have the financial resources to attend through Yellow Ribbon and Tuition Assistance programs. Furthermore, Columbia's robust student affairs, health services, and other resources, ensure that service members receive support in pursuing their educational endeavors to completion. It is an honor to have these incredible men and women at Columbia University.
