With online classes, you can get the education you need on your schedule. And Columbus State has the experience to do online learning the right way.
With hundreds of online courses and dozens of degrees that can be completed online, we are the largest provider of online courses in Ohio. You'll get the same personalized attention you get in our regular classes.
Blackboard is Columbus State's online learning portal. In Blackboard, online students communicate with their professors, find multimedia presentations and talk to other students via a message board.
Online & Blended Courses
Online Courses: Web courses are held completely online, although most web classes require you to take exams at a Columbus State testing center. Some web courses require you to collaborate in real time with your classmates at specific dates and times using web-conferencing.
Blended Courses: Blended courses combine the flexibility of an online class with hands-on teaching from a trained instructor. These classes meet in a traditional classroom one or two times a week, and do the rest of their classwork online. Face-to-face sessions may be held in a campus classroom, lab, or at an external location such as a clinical site for health-related classes.
There's no separate application to become an online student at Columbus State. Fill out the online application and you're on your way.
