Admissions Office & College Coaches
College Coaches assist new students with the application process and provide information
on programs of study and next steps for enrollment, including Next Steps Sessions
for Accepted Students, placement testing, and applying for financial aid.
Meetings with College Coaches are available on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday
during regular business hours. Campus tours provide another opportunity to learn more
about Columbus State.
