Tracking Toward Success

Columbus State and Huntington Bank celebrated the first graduating class of Huntington Exact Track students, three years after the launch of the unique employer-funded partnership. Eighteen Exact Track students earned Associate of Applied Science in Business Management degrees at Columbus State’s 2022 Spring Commencement.

A partnership between Columbus State, Franklin University, and Huntington Bank, Exact Track is an online program in which students earn both associate and bachelor’s degrees in one seamless course sequence. Huntington provides “pre-imbursement” funding up front for all participants, eliminating the need to borrow for college.
