Columbus State Community College, like other public colleges and universities in Ohio, is switching from quarters to semesters effective Autumn 2012. This move will align our academic calendar with that of 90 percent of the colleges and universities in the U.S. and make the transferring of students and academic credits between institutions even easier.

Columbus State began work on the conversion in the fall of 2009. Since then, an incredible amount of behind the scenes work has been and is being completed in preparation for the Switch2Semesters. The college will release pertinent information to the public as the transition process unfolds.

While Columbus State does not anticipate a major impact from this conversion upon the local community, we encourage any individuals or businesses who have questions about how the conversion might affect their particular operations to email us at
