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.
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
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.
Once you have completed both parts of the New Student Workshop, you will be ready
for classes to start! However, we know that it is a lot of information. If you have
additional questions or forgot how to do something, take a look at our New Student Guide which is a quick reference resource on the "how to" of Columbus State.
The First4Weeks initiative at Columbus State uses research-based tips and strategies to help students get a great start to each semester. Find out more at cscc.edu/first4weeks.
