Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC)
The Graduate School joined this consortium beginning academic year 2002-03. The members include: Columbia University, Teacher's College-Columbia, City University of New York-Graduate Center, Fordham University, the New School University, New York University, Rutgers-New Brunswick, and SUNY-Stony Brook.
The consortium exists to facilitate doctoral arts and science students' taking needed coursework at one or several of the other institutions. It is for graduate course-taking only. Graduate level courses are indicated by a course number of 500 or above. It does not arrange or sanction dissertation research and/or faculty consultation at member institutions. Please note: Students who wish to take one course only at Columbia University, should go through the IUDC exchange, not the Exchange Scholar Program.
Students must have completed one academic year of full-time residence in a Ph.D. program in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences. Doctoral students in architecture, public policy and engineering are not normally eligible to participate.
No tuition or fees are exchanged. Grades will be reported either by a letter from the course instructor on the host institution letterhead or through an official transcript from the host institution, and the course will be reported on the student's Princeton transcript.
Students who want to participate are urged to make contact, either themselves or through their advisers, with the instructor of the course they want to take before starting the formal application process.
The deadlines for registration at Princeton are September 24th for the Fall Term and February 15th for the Spring Term.
