Start Here, Then Transfer to a Four-Year College
Columbus State is the ideal place to start your four-year degree! A typical choice is to complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, which fulfills the first two years of a bachelor's, then transfer to a four-year school. We also have designated transfer agreements with specific colleges that provide guaranteed admission and credit transfer toward your chosen major once you finish your associate degree.
Associate of Arts / Associate of Science degree
The Associate of Arts / Associate of Science degrees are general-purpose degrees that fulfill the first two years of a bachelor's degree at most Ohio colleges.

Preferred Pathway® to Ohio State The Preferred Pathway® program allows students to "pre-major," rather than doing the general Associate of Arts / Associate of Science degree. It is a more focused, clear path to a degree from Ohio State.
