Copyright and Fair Use Policy

Content published on the Columbia School of Social Work’s Admissions Web site is free to be republished and/or redistributed, providing that the use is non-commercial and that the author and CSSW are properly attributed.

We prefer to have those interested in redistributing our Web content do so by publishing an excerpt and link to the full content on the Admissions site, where it will be freely available, or at least that they include a link to the original content on this site.

For information and guidance on copyright, permissions, and the fair use of electronic, print, and broadcast material, go to the Copyright Quick Guide produced by Columbia University’s Copyright Advisory Office. The guide provides an overview of copyright basics and includes links to checklists, model forms, and permissions letters and guidelines on fair use, among other helpful resources.
