Columbus State Community College (CSCC) was awarded approval from the Ohio Board of Regents to implement a Medical Assisting Program in 1996. The college began accepting candidates for the Associates Degree in Applied Science Medical Assisting in June 1996.  In April of 1999 the CSCC MAT program received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), upon recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB) as an associate degree program.  In 2006 the program was converted to a one plus one program in which students can follow the plan of study for the Medical Assisting Certificate Program and then choose to continue at CSCC to achieve the Medical Assisting ATS degree. 

The CSCC Medical Assisting Certificate Program received an eight-year accreditation in January 2008.  Compulsory review of the CSCC Medical Assisting Program to obtain renewal of accreditation will commence in March of 2016.   The Medical Assisting Certificate and Associate Degree Program are a subdivision of the Health and Human Services Division at Columbus State Community College.
