You're one step closer to finding your future at Columbia College! New students coming to our traditional campus are required to attend a Registration Event prior to the upcoming spring semester. During the event, you will select your classes, get your student ID photo taken and learn about campus resources. You will also meet other new students and meet one-on-one with a financial aid staff member.
Classes begin on Monday, January 6, 2020. If you want to register for classes for fall, please find registration information at Registration Days.
