Student success—your success—is our number one priority. Not only does the college
support your academic achievement here and now, but we’re also dedicated to preparing
you for future opportunities. At Columbus State, you’ll acquire the knowledge and
skills you need to impact the 21st century through a successful career, meaningful
community service, and diverse individual interests.
Here you’ll have access to tools and resources which can help you to maximize your
success. The first of these is this Student Handbook. This handbook is an introduction to the important academic and job-related skills
that you will need to master, and it details the considerable resources available
to help you maximize your success at Columbus State.
The Student Handbook’s initial sections cover skills such as time management, project
planning, teamwork and persistence, and guide you through the steps to mastering them.
Whether these skills are applied in the classroom or on the job, they often lead to
a successful outcome. That is why they are highlighted.
Subsequent chapters of the handbook are filled with useful information about the
college. Within those sections, you will learn about student services as well as student
rights and responsibilities. There is a helpful planner included, too, which lists
college dates and deadlines for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Keep the Student Handbook nearby for reference as you navigate your first weeks at
Columbus State. It will help you build a habit of success, semester by semester.
I wish you success Beyond Measure at Columbus State and in the future.
