CIU is a great place to be stretched and to grow in your understanding of a biblical worldview. The professors here are unique and teach with passion and skill. Though I was unsure of my choice to attend CIU my freshman year, now that I am coming to the close of my junior year, I am so glad I chose to attend CIU!

  • Dec-20-2017 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    On AUG. 22, 2017 I Visited the Columbia International University and met with Erin Wolters of the Admission Office, went on a campus tour, had lunch with one of the professors in the Student Dining Hall and participated in one of the classes I will be taking in 2018. Even though I knew that I was going to attend this University Online (since I live in New Jersey), I felt it was necessary to pay a visit to the university and I'm very glad that I did. Ever since I applied to this school in May of 2017, they have taken me under their wing, kept in touch with me, made sure that I filled out all of the required application forms, obtain financial aid and ensured my enrollment was a successful and very 5-star experience.

    The experience here is unlike any other college. Your classmates and professors become like your family (the good, the bad, and the wonderful). Campus is in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to downtown and Harbison you can drive there in under 15 minutes.

    CIU is a remarkable university where the love of God is evident and Biblical teaching is everywhere. The atmosphere amongst students, and faculty as well, is one of support, encouragement and Christ-like love. The excellent academics encourage personal growth both spiritually and intellectually.

    CIU is an incredible school especially for those truly interested in following God's calling on their lives as Christians. The professors truly do care about the students actually learning the material and growing in their walks with Christ. It is a great environment and while it prepares you for Christian ministry whether international or in the states, there are also amazing opportunities to get involved in around Columbia itself.

    I have now been attending Columbia International University since August 2010 and I realize it was and is the best decision I could have ever made knowing that my relationship with Christ Jesus would grow stronger, I joined the CIU family because of the Lord's leading; the school's reputation and the family-oriented atmosphere I felt in 2009 when my decision was finally made to attend. I am truly grateful for every person I come in contact with because it brings me closer to the LORD in prayer; not only in prayer, but it has given me an even greater understanding of His Word and a closer relationship.

    I transferred to CIU in January 2011 after attending Midlands Technical College for 2 1/2 years. I thoroughly enjoy my classes at CIU as well my major and the wonderful faculty and professors. I love learning so much more about the Bible and also acquiring hands on experiences in my youth ministry classes.
