Catalog and Student Handbook 2008-2009 [Archived Catalog]

President’s Welcome


The faculty, staff, and I are pleased that you have chosen Columbia State Community College. We are committed to your success as a student, both in and out of the classroom.

This catalog and student handbook has been prepared to include information that will assist you in enrolling, registering, receiving aid, and determining curriculum - information that will assist you in being successful.

We understand you may have questions that you desire to discuss with a college official or curriculum advisor. You are encouraged to seek out personnel in the Admissions office, Financial Aid office, Advising Center, other college offices, or your assigned advisor for assistance. Let us help remove the hassle from your college experience.

While you are here at Columbia State, become involved - participate and/or attend many of the extracurricular happenings that will enhance your learning. Through myChargerNet, the campus-student Internet connection, you will be notified of weekly events which include plays, art exhibits, concerts, athletics, competitions, curriculum/academic societies, and student government.

On a personal note, I am new to Columbia State. I began my tenure as president February 18, 2008. I am more than honored to be your President and I know you will find the people of CSCC to be as exciting, energetic, and helpful as I have found them. I hope that as we encounter each other on campus that you will stop me to introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting you.



Janet F. Smith, Ph.D.
