  • Students transfers between MS programs in CS, CE, and EE -  Student transfers
    between MS programs in CS, CE, and EE at Columbia SEAS are not ordinarily
    possible.  Students wishing to appeal this policy must have completed at
    least one semester in the program to which they were originally admitted,
    petition the directors of the programs they wish to transfer from and to, and
    provide letters of support from at least two regular faculty members of the
    MS program to which they wish to transfer.  These petitions must be included
    in the application for admission to the new program and will be considered by
    the directors of the two MS programs.
