This community college is descent. I'm currently attending and most of everybody reviews are right (the 2 stars or lower). The graduation rate is down because some just come for the refund check and other really fail because they don`t take the time to use the school resources. I usually email my teacher about any concerns or questions I have because if they don't respond after so long you can file a complaint or verbally tell your teacher how you feel. Also, if you're sending files to anyone or anywhere you should always keep a copy. I think by this time everybody can take responsibly and not always blame the school. Columbus state does all it's work on the internet so you have to be caution with your own stuff, it's not their responsibility. They lose or misplace stuff too. I would recommend because its cheap and the semester fly by.

Don't go to this school. Just don't. It's an unorganized, unprofessional environment. Any problems that may arise will be blamed on you. Zero responsibility on there end. Always the students fault. I received incorrect information from my computer science advisor and they take zero responsibility for it or interest in helping me fix it. I see after reading a few reviews that I am not alone. I disagreed with a financial aid issue and they reported me to the student conduct board. Now I have to go defend myself against a baseless accusation. Thank you to everyone who has shared their experience here. We are just people who are trying to better their lives through education, unfortunately this is not the place to do it.

There are good things and bad things about this school, but cons outweigh the pros. The instructors I've had all have been terrific with exception of a couple. One of which was a elderly instructor who taught my math course. She had an extremely strong Russian accent, knew nothing of computers and there was a BIG language barrier, though she was a kind Lady, it was frustrating when she didn't understand my questions. The customer service is really crappy if you call. Nobody knows what to do and they rarely have an answer to your questions. They will direct you person to person, none of them know a thing most the time. Or, they "accidentally" hang up or the "system is down". In person help is a bit better, but still pretty bad. The schools site is terribly designed. Navigation is confusing and clunky. Errors in spelling and dates are abundant. Also, they never delete old pages so past year info comes up when searching the site. If you try to go to student email, it will direct you link to link to link...instead of linking you directly to login. Self Help financial Aid page is horrible. If you submit something, there is no confirmation that you sent anything except for a small pop up. It still tells you to submit forms, even when you already have. So, it leaves you unsure if they actually need you to resubmit or not. They don't do enough landscaping upkeep. Many bushes have extended past fencing and obstruct walking on foot paths/stairs. The elevators are terrifying to ride on. They are outdated and some smell of urine. Also, the older buildings do not have Male and Female bathrooms on every floor. Depending on what floor you are on, you may have to travel to use the bathroom. They should just have unisex bathrooms for these buildings but don't. Overall, if you can afford someplace else for school, go their instead. I honestly think this school overcharges, but all colleges do.

Pros: - Fantastic and experienced teachers. I never had a bad teacher. - No rude TAs. - Small classes. - Low-cost. - Class expectations are reasonable. Cons: - Crime rate of main campus branch. - Any administrative task takes way longer than it seems it should. - Advisors are not super helpful and it can be really hard to figure out what classes you ACTUALLY need to graduate. You will waste time and money in at least one or two class.
