Short-Term Classes

Whether you are ready to start your first semester at Columbus State or you're already a student, it's not too late to sign up for spring classes with our short-term options:

  • Twelve-week classes start February 18 and include many required and elective general education options such as math, english, and psychology.
    NOTE: Registration for spring semester online twelve-week classes has closed. Registration for each on-site class closes on the day and starting time of the first class session.
  • Eight-week classes start March 17 and include COLS 1100 and other general education classes, as well as major-specific courses in computer science, GIS, business, hospitality and more.

Same content, fewer weeks: Short-term classes contain the same content as full-term classes, so you don't miss a thing! Condensing the information into a shorter term means more material will be covered each week.
