College Credit Plus Students: If you have taken classes through the College Credit Plus program and would like to continue on as a traditional student at Columbus State, you do need to complete a standard application.

If you have earned credit at another college or university since you last attended Columbus State, request an official transcript from those college(s). Most colleges have an online transcript request process that you can find easily by visiting their site and searching for “transcripts.”
IMPORTANT: We must receive your official transcript directly from the college. Students are not permitted to submit transcripts.
Walk in or call to meet with an advisor to schedule your classes. Be sure to bring a copy of your transcript(s) with you.
