SHAPE consists of two, three-week summer sessions. Students may attend one or both sessions.
The Application for Summer 2024 will open in November with a priority deadline of December 15, 2023. Admissions are made on a rolling basis based on availability after the priority deadline.
We use the Columbia Graduate Engineering application system - if you see a Graduate Engineering header while looking for the application, don't worry! You are probably in the right place. If you are unsure, just ask by emailing [email protected].
While filling out the application, please reference the "SHAPE Application Instructions" page. There are details here that will help you work through the other sections. If you are asked to fill out any information that does not apply to you (for example, you do not have a GPA), please estimate to the best of your ability. If you are unsure or want to clarify, please email [email protected].
