Applying for Online Campus Admission

Earn your college degree online from an accredited academic institution right from the comfort of your home!

At Columbia College, we offer an extensive variety of online academic programs to fit the educational needs and personal schedule of just about anyone. Earning your college degree on your own time and schedule has never been easier! Our Online Campus offers many of the same degree options as our traditional Day Campus and Evening Campus. Many of our instructors teach both on-campus and online classes.

Online class admissions and registration is quick and easy:

  • If you currently are a student enrolled at Columbia College, you may take online courses without readmission to the online Columbia College campus.
  • If you are interested in online courses but have never attended Columbia College, you may apply for admission at the campus nearest you.
  • If you are a remote student who is not near a Columbia College campus, you may apply online for admission.

Once admitted, the pace at which you work toward your online degree is entirely up to you. At the time of registration, students will receive a Columbia College Online Campus/Distance Education Student Responsibility flier detailing the online course access instructions. Once you access your course online, all you have to do is keep up with the weekly or monthly assignments that are predetermined by your instructor. Course material can be accessed online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The maximum course load is six credit hours, which usually means two classes each eight-week session. Included in the six hours are online web-based courses, as well as traditional on-campus courses. Exceptions can be made on a very limited basis to seniors. See your campus director for details. After you have registered, be sure to read the online User Guide to familiarize yourself with the Columbia College Online Campus interface.

Apply today and you'll be well on your way to earning your college degree in no time!
