About Our Evening Program

Columbia College campus at sunset

Mid-Missouri's most comprehensive evening program for adults

Columbia College offers more majors and more classes for evening students than any other college or university in the area. We have been helping adults improve their lives through higher education since 1975. Our small classes provide an ideal environment for mature students to be with other motivated students. Equally important, we have built a team of experienced faculty members—not teaching assistants—many of whom work in the field they teach.

Whether your goal is to earn a college degree or simply take a few classes to benefit your career, the evening program at Columbia College offers versatility, convenience and quality. Columbia College — it's the college of choice for working adults in mid-Missouri.
