What You'll Need to Attend

In-Person Admission Events are hosted on the downtown Columbus campus for a limited number of current high school seniors (Visit Days) and adults students (Open Houses). Registration is required to participate and will close three days prior to the event date, unless we reach capacity sooner. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with further details and instructions in anticipation to your arrival on campus.

To ensure the health of our campus community, please follow our COVID safety protocols while on campus: 

  • Columbus State is a mask-friendly campus. You are not currently required to wear a mask while on campus, but you are welcome to do so.
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently.
  • Keep six feet apart when possible.
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick. We’ll be happy to find another time to meet you.
