Meet with University Advisors
All "visits" made by college and university representatives to Columbus State, as well as programs and information sessions, will be virtual for Autumn Semester 2020. The University Transfer Center will be closed to students and staff for the duration of the semester. Please see below for our master virtual program and visit calendars.
Please check the Preferred Pathway and the Search Transfer Agreements pages for more information on how to receive transfer admissions and academic advising at a distance for each institution.
For general coronavirus updates, please see Coronavirus Info & FAQs.
Admissions representatives and academic advisors from local and statewide public and private colleges visit Columbus State every semester to recruit our students for transfer. Students can meet with these representatives at any point in their Columbus State experience. You do not have to be accepted to any of the colleges that visit and no appointment is necessary for these open virtual meetings. Some programs, tours, and information sessions advertised may require an email or RSVP response to be added to the program and receive a link to access it on at the specified date and time. Students should view the calendar entries carefully to understand which virtual application is being used for the visit (Zoom, WebEx, MS Teams) and the access codes, passwords, and other information needed. If students have any questions about the visit calendars below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before Your Visit
Before you meet virtually with an advisor/representative, please consider completing the following tasks:
- Create a PDF, a screen shot, or a high quality photo of your unofficial transcript or Degree Audit (DARS) through your Cougarweb account to allow it to be shared via virtual meeting or email with a representative, if requested.
- Make a list of questions you would like answered by the representative.
- Understand that these open virtual meetings may include other students online during the meetings or may involve you waiting in a virtual "waiting room" for your turn to chat. It may be necessary to follow up and schedule a one-on-one phone or virtual appointment with the representative after the meeting depending upon the number of students waiting or at the representative's request.
- Ask questions that are pertinent to the representative's institution. While they can offer general advice about Columbus State programs (i.e. choose this Columbus State major for this bachelor's degrees), they are not actual Columbus State advisors. If you have questions about Columbus State's programs or courses, please visit your Columbus State academic advisor.
University Visit Calendars
Below is our master visit calendars for the semester. There is a calendar for regular open virtual meetings with colleges and universities, as well as a second calendar for special virtual information sessions, virtual tours, and virtual major information sessions. Please note: The calendar below is subject to change. Although inclement weather and other travel related issues don't affect "virtual" meetings, there may be a time in which a representative is ill or is otherwise unable to make the virtual meeting. Should a representative be unable to make their visit, we will make a note "Cancelled" as soon as we are made aware of the absence.
