College Success Express

An accelerated, no-cost way to prepare for Autumn semester!

Incoming freshmen who have graduated within the past two years are invited to get a jump on preparing for Autumn semester by attending a College Success Express session this summer. This year's program will be delivered in a remote (online) format.

This no-cost, two-week session puts you on the fast track to complete:

  • COLS 1101 (College Success Skills)
  • Test preparation and placement testing for ALEKS PPL (Math)
  • Test preparation and placement testing for Accuplacer (Reading/Writing)
  • New Student Orientation and Autumn 2020 course registration

COLS 1101 is a required class for all new Columbus State students, usually taken as part of the first semester schedule at the cost of one credit hour. College Success Express lets you complete it in just two weeks – with no tuition costs! Plus, each session includes test-prep workshops, and re-testing as needed. Your College Success Express session concludes with New Student Orientation.

You'll leave with your class schedule completed, and everything you need to begin Autumn semester.
