My experience at Columbus State Community College has made the transition from high school to post secondary education very easy. My college experiences at this has been all good! The financial aid team is wonderful, scheduling classes is so easy, the teachers WILL help you out yet they need to know that you are struggling because college does not hold your hand, it is all on you. Columbus State Community College has made it extremely easy for my undergrad years since my career requires a master's degree. Academic advisors are extremely kind and love to meet one-on-one with students, they love to make sure you are on the right path. I give Columbus State Community College a full five stars because of the teams in the departments, the students vary all over the world, and the teachers are wonderful! It is an easy and inexpensive way to finish your Associates and start on your Bachelors to transfer anywhere.

Columbus State has grown quite a bit over my lifetime. I remember when it started as "Columbus Technical Institute" and it has since grown to become a well respected two year college. I attended in the early 90's, and the school was still growing. The class sizes were small, the instructors brought real world experiences into the classrooms, and I felt that the entire institution was really invested in my success. Whether you are looking to complete a complete Associate's degree program, or planning on transferring to a four year college, CSCC will provide you with a solid foundation for your academic or career ambitions. I highly recommend it!
Overall, Columbus State is fantastic! Some of the facilities could use updating, and some of the advisors are lacking a little, but the professors I have had are absolutely fantastic, and they really care about preparing their students.
The courses are absolutely college-level - there is nothing lacking about them, which many say is the case with community colleges. Having attended both a university and another community college, I can confidently say that the classes and instruction at CSCC are on-par with large universities at a fraction of the cost.
