You're one step closer to being a student at Columbia College! All new students coming to our traditional campus are required to attend a Registration Event to register for class for the upcoming spring semester. During the event, you will select your classes, get your photo taken for your student ID, learn more about campus resources, meet other new students and meet one-on-one with a financial aid staff member.
Classes begin on Monday, January 7, 2019. If you want to register for classes for fall, please find registration information at Registration Days.
