Time again to Take 15!

logoHow can you get on the fast track to complete your degree? Take 15 credits during Summer Semester, starting May 20 and running through August 3! It’s a shorter semester, so you can get a lot done this summer by taking 15 credits—and still have lots of time for a summer vacation before Autumn Semester begins on August 21.

With Columbus State’s new semester schedule that all Ohio colleges and universities are on now, you will need to have at least 15 credits per semester to complete your degree according to plan.

Take a look at your Plan of Study for your degree and you’ll see that it requires at least 60 credits to complete. A “full load” of classes –at least 15 credits – will get you there on time and on budget!

In case you missed it - improvement to your student email is coming

Columbus State is upgrading from Live@Edu to Office 365. The transition is scheduled starting on Saturday, May 11. The upgrade may take a few days to complete fully. The upgraded system should be functional starting May 15 at the latest.

Your new student email account will include: Email, file sharing through SharePoint Online, online MS Office programs for creating and reading documents, instant messaging, and online meetings. Note: Additional features, such as Lync and SharePoint Online, will not be available until approximately 30 days after the email switch.

You do not need to do anything in preparation for this upgrade. There will be a new look to the initial login page when you access your student email. To see what this will look like, visit            

Your email from your Live@Edu account will be migrated to Office 365. Your SkyDrive however will become a separate account with the password managed by Microsoft. Initially, your password for the SkyDrive account will be whatever it is on May 11. After the upgrade is complete, you may change your SkyDrive password through Microsoft’s interface and tools.

Important: Columbus State will not be able to assist with password changes to the SkyDrive account after the upgrade. Any items you saved to the 7GB SkyDrive will remain in the SkyDrive for you to keep and use for as long as you like.  

Columbus Crossroads update

logoIt’s been some time since there have been any major changes in the ongoing Columbus Crossroads project on I-71 and I-670. That will change throughout the coming year as the project nears completion.

Here are some key changes ahead that will impact Columbus State students who use those highways:

I-71 South- In May there will be a minor lane shift at Spring Street. Then in August, there will be a major lane shift between I-670 and Long Street. That will put the highway in its permanent alignment.

Cleveland Avenue- In September: the entrance ramps to I-670 east and to I-71 north and south all open.

Spring Street- In November: The new exits from I-71 south and I-670 east to Spring Street both open.
