SHAPE consists of two, three-week summer sessions and students may attend one or both sessions.
At this time, we are no longer accepting applications for Summer 2021. We encourage all that are eligible to apply next year.
The priority and scholarship deadline is March 25th, 2021 at 11:59pm. If you apply by this deadline, the $50 application fee will be waived. After the deadline, we will have rolling admissions based on availability.
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 you are 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 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].
