By Mail

Checks and money orders in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank account made payable to Columbia University can be mailed along with the top portion of the printed Statement to our processing center. Payments by mail must be received, not simply postmarked, by the due date in order to avoid late payment charges.

If the Statement stub is not available, the student’s name and Columbia University PID, the nine-digit identification number (Ask Us), must be written on the check or money order to ensure timely crediting.
