Columbia is making two major changes for Fall 2016, one in course numbering and one in course prefixes. 

  • Change in Course Numbering: Some, not all, Columbia course numbers have changed as of March, and these updated course numbers are published in the Directory of Classes. Please contact your counterpart department at Columbia if you have questions about this transition.
  • Change in Course Prefixes: V, W, and G courses will change their prefixes in July. BC courses will not change.


No action is required at this time.
