Columbus State is a great college for people who want to take it slow or who are indecisive about attending a university. I wasn't sure college was right for me but after a year at Columbus State, I felt that I made the right decisions. The faculty is very helpful and if you plan on transferring the counselors are extremely helpful too! The professors make you feel welcome and smaller classes are great because you get to ask more questions and your professor knows who you are. Columbus State is a great two-year university and it is definitely super affordable!

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.
Great experience! The teachers collaborate with you online and answer any questions you may have. Teachers are engaged in the learning and really care about your success. They offer blended courses, which is online courses where you meet once a week for lab and I recommend these courses if you want more time on your hands.
