Ohio State Pre-Majors
Ohio State Pathways
A preliminary list of pre-majors has been developed to assist Preferred Pathway® students with course selection for their chosen major. Pre-major plans will be posted as they are developed. Please check this website regularly for the most current list of approved pre-majors.
All pathways can result in the completion of an Associate degree and a Bachelor degree, however there are different variations.
1+3 = Year 1 at Columbus State, Years 2, 3, and 4 at Ohio State (Associate degree received via reverse transfer credit at end of Sophomore year)
2+2 = Years 1 and 2 at Columbus State, Years 3 and 4 at Ohio State (Associate degree received upon completion of work at CSCC)
2+3 = Years 1 and 2 at Columbus State, Years 3, 4, and 5 at Ohio State (Associate degree received upon completion of work at CSCC)
For students to become a part of the Preferred Pathway Program, they must 1) be a current student and 2) email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the Blackboard/Transfer community for their chosen four-year institution. Students are welcome to participate in more than one community. It is here that the four-year partners will communicate the information needed, important updates, and provide access to university resources.
