质量提升计划:KoalaPASS

哥伦比亚大学 is excited to announce our 叫作KoalaPASS的质量提升计划. KoalaPASS will significantly change how our new Day College students are advised by doubling the advisors and adding more focused support for the transition to 哥伦比亚大学.

质素提升计划, 简称QEP, is a 5-year plan to improve some aspect of student outcomes. It represents a significant commitment by the College in both time and money. The process for KoalaPASS started in mid-2020, and the plan was submitted to SACSCOC for approval in February of 2022. The final version will be published in May of 2022 for implementation during the summer for new Day College students who start in August of 2022.

  • 我是一名新生. 我的顾问是如何分配的?
    • Students who declare a major upon enrolling will be assigned a faculty member in their major. Students who have not declared a major upon enrolling will be assigned a member of the faculty based on the total advising load for each faculty member. All students will be assigned to a 工作人员 advisor based on the alphabet.
