What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Come here wanting to learn! If you're thinking you can come here and skip class without the teacher ever knowing--think again! The professors take an active role in your education and want you to succeed. Make sure you take advantage of the professors office hours; they are there for a reason: they WANT to see YOU! Don't stress out over rooming situations; just make sure you fill out your rooming contract to the best of your abilities and it will work out fine! I was petrified as to who I would get, and now my roomie and I are like the best of friends! Also...the food is not that bad ;)

If any new student is thinking about attending this college, make sure you turn in all of your paper work, IMMEDIATELY you do not want to have to keep being reminded to send in your paper work. Also, if any new student is thinking about being a teacher, ask about the Beacon and Daystar programs, ahead of time, so that you are aware of what each program has to offer.
Andrea-Ella from Columbia, MO
Be prepared to work. I have taken both online and in-seat. The online courses are a lot of work, but so are the in-seat classes.
Crystal from Boonville, MO
Visit the campus and learn about the programs here that relate to what you are interested in majoring in. If you are set on Columbia College, I recommend making a four year plan and also try to get involved in at least one club or extra curricular activity here at CC.
JC from Mexico, MO
I suggest you make sure that you enjoy working on the computer and you are very independent.
Brittany from Jacksonville, FL
Be patient. It takes a little getting used to the online atmosphere, but it is well worth it. The flexibility you have when taking classes online is no comparison to in seat classes.
Karen from Camdenton, MO
Talk to the staff and ask them anything, they are more than willing to help you. Also attend Scholarship Day. You can earn 1 of 10 full ride scholarships that you can only get at scholarship day.
Anthony from Holts Summit, MO
Try to keep the same academic advisor.
