The Preferred Pathway at Columbus State gives you many options to start your bachelor’s degree debt-free. Our low tuition and commitment to keeping education affordable means Preferred Pathway students graduate ready to start planning for the future – not paying off the past.
Transfer agreements with our nine Preferred Pathway partners allow you to complete up to the first two years of requirements in many different majors and programs of study at Columbus State, then transfer seamlessly to complete your bachelor’s degree. Students must complete admissions applications and submit all requested documentation (transcripts, test scores, and/or other items) for their chosen partner by the college or university's stated deadline to ensure their transfer.
Connect on Blackboard: Each Preferred Pathway Partner college/university has its own Blackboard Community to enable communication between the partner institution, CSCC, and interested students. Students are added to the Blackboard Community based on their stated interest on their CSCC admissions application and current CSCC enrollment. If you are enrolled in the wrong community or you wish to be added to more or different communities for our Preferred Pathway Partners or Dual Admission Partners, please click here to complete a request for changes and additions.
