The Arts & Sciences Advising Team assists students with academic planning for Associate
of Arts and Associate of Science degree completion at Columbus State. These degrees are the general education requirements (Math, English, History, Science,
etc.) of bachelor’s degrees at most four-year colleges.
Arts & Sciences Advisors are assigned to students, who are pursuing the Associate
of Arts or Associate of Science degrees, as early as their second semester at Columbus
State. Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree-seeking students can consult with
an Arts & Sciences Academic Advisor for Columbus State degree and graduation planning,
assistance with developing and achieving academic goals, as well as information about
New students, students who are not seeking a Columbus State degree (Transient/Guest), and students who are pursuing majors other than Associate of Arts or Associate
of Science, should contact their assigned advising group directly for assistance.
Please note: We will be closed from 12:30 until 3:30 on 8/25/16!

Students are not assigned to a specific Arts & Sciences Advisor. However, please use the alpha split below to direct Quick Questions. Make sure to include your full name and Cougar ID number in any email or phone correspondence.
Arts & Sciences offers walk-ins, no appointment needed, Monday through Friday from
10am until 1pm. You will be seen by the first available Advisor, but be prepared for
a bit of a wait as we have been very busy as the semester is getting closer to starting.
Try to come in as close to 10am as possible because we stop taking students if we
get too many and see that we will not be able to finish them all by 1pm.
