The summer 2018 flat rate tuition for new full-time MDE students will be $26,874, with a projected increase of 3% for the fall and spring terms.

Financial Aid Appeals Process
Columbia Nursing recognizes that a student’s total expenses for the academic year may exceed the standard cost of attendance. The appeal form allows the Office of Financial Aid to examine selected education related expenses and evaluate a student's option for additional loan funding.
You will need to submit a Budget Appeal Form with the required documentation to the Office of Financial Aid. The appeal may take 12-15 business days to process. Decisions are based upon your provided documentation and are directed by administrative parameters previously established by Columbia University School of Nursing. All decisions are final. Once a decision is made on a student's appeal request, an email will be sent to the student.
