Location Transfer Policy
This policy outlines the guidelines surrounding the transfer from one Columbia College campus location to another campus location.
This policy applies to all College students seeking to transfer locations within Columbia College.
Students may seek change their Columbia College campus location as an applicant or as a current student at any time. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor at their current location prior to changing locations. By meeting with an advisor, students will be able to make an informed decision prior to changing locations and taking into consideration possible impacts to:
- Institutional aid
- Degree program availability
- Course availability
- Degree completion
If an applicant/admitted applicant is not currently enrolled, then he or she should contact the Admissions Office to change location before enrolling in classes. Note that this process cannot be completed by logging into a previously submitted admissions application.
Currently enrolled Columbia College students who wish to officially change their location should log into their CougarTrack account. Use the “Applicants” drop-down menu (on the left) to find and click on “Forms.” Select the “Change of Campus” form. Indicate desired location as well as the session that she or he would like to begin taking courses at the new location. Before a student is allowed to register for classes at the new location, he or she may be required to meet with an academic advisor at the new location.
Note that applicants seeking to change locations to the Main Campus Day or Main Campus Evening program may have to meet additional admission requirements before being admitted to the new location and enrolling in courses. Requesting a transfer of location does not guarantee approval of the request. If additional admission requirements are not met, then the applicant may be denied admission to the requested location. The College reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant and to deny and/or rescind admission to any applicant who provides false or misleading information to the College.
