Time again to Take 15!
How 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!

functional starting May 15 at the latest.

look to the initial login page when you access your student email. To see what this
will look like, visit http://cscc.edu/email.
Your email from your Live@Edu account will be migrated to Office 365. Your SkyDrive

Important: Columbus State will not be able to assist with password changes to the
