"Both Georgia campuses have experienced a multi-year period of unprecedented and steady enrollment growth as more service members and civilian learners recognize that Columbia College’s flexible schedules and online courses work for them," said Brouder. “We look forward to another 10 years of educational excellence.”
Both Columbia College-Hunter Army Airfield and Columbia College-Fort Stewart were established in 2002 to serve the military population and their families on the bases and in the surrounding communities.
Each campus offers four associate and five bachelor’s degree programs in-seat as well as 23 associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees online.
