Supporting Columbia College

As vital supporters of the Columbia College Fund, parents provide financial resources that propel academic excellence at the College and improve student services and facilities.

Columbia College is deeply committed to keeping costs low for its students. Full tuition covers less than 60 percent of the actual cost of a Columbia College education, regardless of whether a student receives financial aid. Because tuition covers only a portion of operating costs, Columbia must look to return on its endowment and donations from parents, grandparents, alumni and friends to close this gap.
