Events for Accepted Students
If you are already accepted to Columbus State and ready to take your next steps, we have events that will help you get ready to register for your first semester of classes:
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
Invitation-only event for students who graduated from high school in 2020 or 2021, and are entering autumn semester.
New Student Workshop
For incoming students not eligible for New Student Orientation.
File your FAFSA first! The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine how much assistance - in grants or loans - you may qualify for. We urge you to complete it as soon as possible, and we're here to help. Each FAFSA Workshop includes a general presentation about the federal student aid process, followed by an opportunity for students to complete the FAFSA on the spot.
