Virtual Advising Appointments

Are you a student with 24 or more earned hours and need an appointment with an advisor this summer? Virtual appointments are available now. Watch this video (https://youtu.be/1hUEtil2rHo) to learn how to make an appointment. 

You are not required to make an appointment with your assigned advisor. You should make an appointment with an advisor from the appropriate academic division. Scroll down these pages of the college website to determine which division your major is assigned:

Tennessee Promise

Due to the current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution THEC/TSAC has made the decision to WAIVE the July 1, 2020 community service requirement.

A Tennessee Promise student enrolling at an eligible institution for the Summer or Fall semester will not be required to complete and submit community service to maintain eligibility for that term. Go to TN Promise to learn more.


Calculator Returns

Calculators will not be due until three weeks after the College, including the Library, opens. No holds will be placed until three weeks after re-opening. For more information, read Calculator Returns.


Tutoring and Learning Center

At this time the Tutoring and Learning Center (TLC) is operating virtually due to COVID-19. We are offering Zoom tutoring, facilitated by Columbia State's full-time TLC staff and adjunct faculty. In addition, there is Smarthinking, a free, 24/7 online tutoring site available to all enrolled Columbia State students. Please see Tutoring and Learning Center page for more information. The TLC staff look forward to returning to campus when considered safe.


Follett Bookstore - Free Ground Shipping

The Columbia State Follett online bookstore is still available and is offering extended FREE GROUND SHIPPING on all orders through June 8. Please go to Columbia State Online Bookstore. All orders will be processed and shipped within 1-2 business days.

*Note: Some items may have limited availability. These items are noted as “backordered” because they may ship from locations affected by a COVID-19 closure. If backordered items are purchased, they will ship as soon as they are able.


Forms Made Fillable

In order to make it easier for everyone during this virtual transition, the following forms on the Records web page will allow you to insert your information:

For the Intent to Graduate and the Request for Technical Certificate forms, students may complete the forms and email them from their Columbia State email to their advisor, etc. for approval. That individual’s approval will consist of reviewing the form and approving it by emailing to records@ColumbiaState.edu from their Columbia State email.

For the Change of Major forms, students may complete those and email them to proessing@ColumbiaState.edu from their Columbia State email address. This may serve as the student’s signature.


Pulse App to Access Online Campus (D2L)

Brightspace Pulse is a mobile app that helps you keep track of important updates. It brings information together in one place so you can spend less time organizing and more time learning.
