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 advising session where students
will learn what classes they should register for and how to register for those classes.
Guided by our team of College Transition Specialists, students will leave the workshop
registered for their first semester classes.
Prior to receiving course recommendations and registering for classes, students need
to complete placement testing.
If you plan to start classes in Autumn Semester 2021 and you graduated high school
in 2020 or will graduate in 2021, you should not complete the New Student Workshop.
Your next step is to attend New Student Orientation.
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.
