Program Policies

Withdrawal from the Dual Degree Program

All students enrolled in the Dual Degree Program are expected to make sufficient academic progress and to fulfill all academic obligations required by both institutions in order to obtain two diplomas.

In very rare circumstances, students enrolled in the Dual Degree Program may seek to leave the Program to pursue alternative academic opportunities. Students who wish to leave the Dual Degree Program prior to completion are not automatically entitled to enter the undergraduate programs of either Columbia University or Tel Aviv University. Therefore, it is advised that students consult with their academic advisors at both TAU and Columbia as early as possible.

Neither Columbia nor TAU guarantees the transferability of credits completed within the Dual Degree Program into another program offered by either institution.

Should a student decide to leave the Dual Degree Program to join Columbia University, he or she must re-submit an application for admission in accordance with all rules and regulations established by Columbia University’s Office of Admissions.
