Columbia College's course schedule allows students to start at any time and to progress on their own schedule, rather than having to wait for a set time in the academic year.
Graduate courses are offered through traditional classroom instruction during the evening. The classes are held in eight-week sessions. There are five sessions each year starting in January, March, June, August and October.
