Application Process and Requirements
Transfer Entry Process
The Dual BA Program between Trinity College Dublin and Columbia University offers highly qualified students who are already enrolled in an eligible Trinity College Dublin academic track an opportunity to continue their education in New York City at Columbia University through the Transfer Entry process. In lieu of the traditional sophister years at Trinity, admitted students spend two years at Columbia University, enrolled full time at the School of General Studies, Columbia's undergraduate college for students pursuing a nontraditional educational path. Upon completion of their studies at Columbia, Dual BA Program students will earn two bachelor's degrees, one from each institution.
