Finish Sequences Now
Many students are taking an extra class to finish up before the Switch 2 Semesters hits this fall. Semesters are longer than quarters, so multi-quarter class sequences may be disrupted. It's a good idea to finish up those sequences if you can.
The Shorter Quarter
Summer Quarter is only nine weeks, instead of the usual 11, in order to accommodate the Switch 2 Semesters.
Ohio State and Ohio U Students (and students from other colleges)
Because Summer Quarter is shorter, you'll be able to take a Columbus State class and get back to your home college before Autumn starts. Columbus State is a great place to take general ed classes like Math or Science. Or, if you're just starting at a four-year school, take classes here to get a jump on your studies. We feature small classes and the lowest tuition price in the region.
More importantly, Summer at Columbus State is your last chance for quarters. If you have a quarter sequence to finish up, look to us.

Are you a graduating high school senior who plans to come to Columbus State in the fall? Thinking about taking some Columbus State classes before transferring on? Here's your chance to plan your schedule.
Switch 2 Semesters
Columbus State switches to semesters with Autumn Semester 2012. If you are a full-time student (minimum of 12 credit hours), you'll have to schedule an additional class or two to meet full-time status because many semester courses earn fewer hours of credit. Take more to be sure you stay on track.
Columbus State is the largest provider of distance learning classes in Ohio, with 13,709 students signed up for at least one online class last Autumn. If you need to fit a class into your schedule -- or just hate finding a place to park -- try Online Classes
