The Dispatch wrote Columbus State, OU to offer 4-year degree

Local bachelor’s option to be affordable, flexible

Wednesday, February 6, 2008


Starting this fall, up to 500 Columbus State students a year can start building their associate degree into a bachelor’s from Ohio University — without ever leaving the community college.

An agreement, which will be signed today, effectively will allow students who have completed any of Columbus State’s 55 career and technical programs to jump into their junior year without having to redo any of their lower-level courses.

Details are still being worked out, but plans call for students to pay Columbus State prices for their community-college courses — currently $79 per credit hour — and a regional campus rate — now $153 per credit hour — for the OU classes. Main campus charges nearly twice as much.
