New Student Workshops
The New Student Workshop is a two-part program to prepare students to be successful at Columbus State, including registering for first semester classes. Students who complete the New Student Workshop will have the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve their academic goals.
This program is intended for students who graduated high school in 2018 or earlier. If you graduated high school in 2019 or 2020, please attend a New Student Orientation.
- Part One, the Online Workshop, introduces students to Columbus State's academics, support resources, and student life. Students complete the Online Workshop independently and at their own pace. At the end of Part One, students register for a Course Scheduling workshop.
- Part Two, the Course Scheduling Workshop, is a live session where students will register for their first semester classes. Guided by a College Transition Specialist from the Center for Advising, Support, and Exploration, students will learn what classes they should register for and will be walked through the registration process from start to finish. Students will leave the workshop registered for their first semester classes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to receiving course recommendations and registering for classes, students need to complete placement testing.
Have you already completed the advising process and received course recommendations, but need a little help with the registration process? Check out one of our virtual CougarWeb labs!
IMPORTANT: These virtual labs are conducted via Microsoft Teams. You can connect via web browser with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, or if you are on your phone you can connect by downloading the Teams app from the Apple Store or Google Play.
