Return to Campus - COVID-19 Updates

We are excited to be ramping up in-person instruction and services and welcoming more students, employees and visitors back to campus life during the 2021-2022 academic year. As we continue to operate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to our guiding principles of health and safety, compassion and flexibility, and clear communication. The well-being of our students, faculty, and staff is of paramount importance as we navigate ways to safely deliver a Columbus State education.

COVID Safety On Campus

  • As of March 14, masks are no longer required indoors while on Columbus State property. This has been communicated via employee and student email. Masks continue to be an option available to all at a personal level, and will continue to be offered at campus sanitization supply stations.
  • As of May 13, 2022, students, faculty, and staff reporting to in-person activities are not required to submit an online health assessment. However, all community members are expected to complete a personal wellness review and should not report to College facilities when they are sick or if they have tested positive for COVID-19.
  • For faster service, think early, think online! As we continue navigating the COVID surge and related staffing constraints, Student Central is working hard to support student needs safely and efficiently. If you need help, ask now; don’t wait until the last minute. And seek virtual service first, via online chat at, phone at (614) 287-5353, or email at Some in-person services are available, but wait times may be increased. Thank you for your patience.
  • Student services are available in person when virtual service is insufficient. It's also wise to check service hours availability by operational area to make sure we're present to serve you.
  • If you’re not feeling well, we ask you to stay home. (We will, too.) We're ready to support our students who experience a positive COVID-19 result.
  • At this time, Columbus State does not require students or staff to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, but we do encourage you to get the shot.
