Next Steps for Accepted Students
Summer 2020 Registration
The next step for students planning to begin taking classes during the summer semester is to complete an online New Student Workshop. Within 1-2 business days of completing the Workshop, a member of the New Student Programs team will contact students to confirm their major, provide course recommendations, and answer any remaining questions.
Autumn 2020 Registration:
There are two paths for students beginning Autumn 2020, depending on our status:
If you are a 2020 or 2019 high school graduate, your next step is to attend New Student Orientation. Sessions begin in May and run through July. Information regarding New Student Orientation will be sent to your Columbus State student email (the one that ends in @cscc.edu) in early-to-mid May. At New Student Orientation, students will connect with other new students, engage with current student leaders, learn more about being successful as a college student, and schedule their first semester classes with the help of our advising team.
If you graduated from high school prior to 2019, your next step is to attend an online New Student Workshop. Within 1-2 business days of completing the Workshop, a member of the New Student Programs team will contact students to confirm their major, provide course recommendations, and answer any remaining questions.
