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!


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  You may also email parking at

Parking Tip
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.

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.
