Just got an email from the Office of Admissions: As testing centers around the world are shut down because of COVID-19, some Graduate Center master’s programs that normally require GRE scores to apply for admission are going to temporarily waive this requirement. These programs are Classics, Cognitive Neuroscience, Data Science, International Migration Studies, Nanoscience, Philosophy, Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences, and Women’s and Gender Studies. For Fall 2020 applicants only, these programs join Data Analysis and Visualization, Digital Humanities, Liberal Studies, and Middle Eastern Studies in not requiring the GRE. The program’s admissions committee may request additional writing samples or interviews as an alternative means of assessing your qualifications. If you have already taken this exam, please upload your scores as usual as it will help the committee review your application.

I was looking into Columbia's Ph.D and Ed.D programs and was unable to find clear information on how Teacher's College handles Ph.D funding. On the website it says "Ph.D. students normally receive the annual prevailing stipend and appropriate tuition and health fees for five years, provided that they remain in good academic standing and, in the case of student officers, have discharged responsibly their pedagogical or research duties." Other programs that I have looked at have more or less stated explicitly that all Ph.D programs have their tuition covered for 5 years. Does anyone know if tuition is covered for Ed.D programs/Ph.D programs at Teachers' College? What's the funding like (if any) for these programs? Thanks for your help!
