As with many top colleges, you often need relatively deep pockets and stellar test scores to attend an Ivy League school like Columbia University. But, like most of the world's top universities, Columbia also offers a handful of its courses online entirely for free.

You can audit over 30 of Columbia's online courses at no cost on edX, a non-profit founded by Harvard and MIT to lower education barriers such as cost and location. Courses range in subjects from Civil War history and Buddhism to data analysis and public health.
