Office of Student Affairs
Serving the largest and most diverse student population of International and Public Affairs schools, the Office of Student Affairs at SIPA provides programs and services that enhance the student experience in and out of the classroom. We do this through our orientation of new students, academic advising and registration services, student life programming, and degree certification and graduation exercises. From admission through graduation, we are committed to guiding our students through any academic or personal challenges relating to their tenure at SIPA.
SIPA Graduation will be on May 13 (also known as Class Day), we will recognize all SIPA’s own master’s and PhD candidates. At the University Commencement on May 15, Columbia will officially confer academic degrees on graduates from every school.
