Spring Graduate Discovery Day

Discovery Days are the most comprehensive way to experience Columbus State University. While each Discovery Day is different, generally attendees will have the opportunity to chat with Admissions, Financial Aid, meet current graduate students, and discover what kind of loan forgiveness programs are available to them. Students will also have the opportunity to speak with faculty to gain insight about the academic offerings available at Columbus State.
Due to space-limitations, all Discovery Days require pre-registration and have a limitation on the number of guest that can accompany each student. There is no cost to attend these events.

Date: Saturday, February 21st
Time: 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
