Let's talk college cost

Talk to any student planning to go to college and, chances are, they will tell you they expect to go into debt. Unless their parents can cover the costs – or they get a full-ride scholarship – students feel that college debt is inevitable.

Talk to any Columbus State student and you’ll get quite a different story. Our low tuition and commitment to keeping college affordable and accessible is changing the college conversation. In fact, 76% of our students take on no student loan debt. And all of our graduates who transfer on to a four-year college or university save 40-60% on the total cost of their bachelor’s degree. So they leave college ready to start planning for the future instead of paying off the past.
