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!
A parking reminder for Summer Semester
Parking on the Columbus State campuses requires a valid parking permit for the current
term. Summer permits are $35 and should be ordered immediately. Log in to CougarWeb,
register your car, request your permit, then make a payment to pay for the permit.
Permits are already being mailed to students who have purchased their summer permits.
We will have a temporary permit available on the parking web site by the first day
of classes; that permit will be valid through Friday May 31, 2013. If you have any
questions about parking, please visit the parking web site at www.cscc.edu/services/publicsafety/parking.shtml
You may also email parking at firstname.lastname@example.org
Student parking is in lots designated with an "S" after the lot number. Lots designated
with and "E" and parking meters on campus are for employees and visitors, respectively. Citations
for parking in employee lots or at visitor meters are $50. There is ample student parking
available in the garage, and in lots 32-S and 28-S.
