Let us help you succeed

Student Success Advising provides an opportunity for one-on-one appointments. We can help you create a plan to ensure you are successful at Columbia College. Student Success Advising is your chance to talk about your experiences both in and out of the classroom in a comfortable, convenient environment. We do not replace your academic advisor—he or she will help you plot your courses to ensure you graduate on time—but we do serve as a resource to help you be successful while at Columbia College.
