Since 1998, Columbia University and New York University have maintained an agreement to share a number of language courses each academic year. Columbia and NYU students can freely cross-register for these courses and will receive credit at their home institution. The currently available courses are summarized below for convince. As always, the most up to date information can be found in the Columbia Directory of Classes.
Please note that there is another consortial agreement for Ph.D. Students (and only Ph.D. students) between Columbia University, NYU, the New School and CUNY. This allows Ph.D. students to enroll for any classes at any of the four schools. For more information on this program, please contact Thalyana Stathis at firstname.lastname@example.org, +1-212-854-4738.

It is important to note that the agreement bears on specific courses and not on languages. If a student wishes to enroll for a language class other than the ones listed above, they will need to secure special permission from NYU. To do so, please contact Stéphane Charitos at email@example.com, +1-212-854-6341 who will petition his NYU counterpart to have this course added to the agreement. Please bear in mind that while NYU has been amenable in the past to adding courses to help Columbia students with their language studies, one should not automatically assume that they will agree to add any class.
