Prospective Students


Smiling student Columbia College-Salt Lake understands the needs of military members and adults seeking their education. In fact, more than half of our 34 Nationwide Campuses are located on military bases.

We are part of an extended network of campuses located around the country. The home campus, founded in 1851, is located in Columbia, Mo.

Columbia College serves nearly 25,000 students each year.
