At Columbia College, we like to make the application and matriculation processes as painless as possible. That's why we've included this list of frequently asked questions pertaining to the Evening Extended Program below, so that you can head off any questions or concerns you may have at the pass.
Need additional guidance? Don't hesitate to reach out to our admissions department for further clarification.
- Will there be a different admissions process for daytime classes?
No. Applicants interested in taking daytime courses at Columbia College will follow the exact same requirements as our Evening Extended Program applicants. Visit our Evening Admissions page for eligibility requirements, application instructions, and more.
- Who is eligible to take daytime classes?
At present, daytime class eligibility is restricted to students pursuing undergraduate degrees in one of the following academic areas:
- Business Administration
- Computer & Information Science
- Criminal Justice
- Which courses will be offered during the day?
Admitted students will be able to take courses pertaining to their major as well as general education courses during daytime hours.
- Will courses offered during the day also be offered in the evenings?
Since course offerings vary from semester to semester, evening, daytime, and online course availability will fluctuate depending on our internal academic schedule. But rest assured: you will have a variety of courses to choose from, and you will be able to meet your individual academic needs on a schedule that works best for you.
- If I take a daytime course, will I be enrolled with students from the women's college?
The women's college is an entirely distinct undergraduate program—students pursuing daytime coursework through the Evening Extended Program will not be enrolled alongside women's college students.
- Will I have access to any additional facilities if I enroll in daytime classes?
Yes, students enrolled in daytime coursework enjoy the full range of amenities available to our traditional undergraduates. This includes, but is not limited to: the library, the dining hall, our computer labs, and more. Unfortunately, at this time, students enrolled in daytime courses are not permitted to use the campus fitness center.
- Is Columbia College still a women's college?
Columbia College's residential, on-campus undergraduate program is open only to women applicants—but, because of the range of co-ed academic programs that we now offer, we're so much more than just a women's college. We help a variety of students of all gender identities meet their career and academic goals through our co-ed evening, online, and graduate programs.
- Who can live in the near-campus housing?
As long as you're enrolled in the Evening Extended Program, you can take advantage of our near-campus housing option.
- How far from Columbia College's campus is this housing option located?
Our near-campus housing option is a mere two blocks from the Columbia College campus—around a half mile, which means you're well within walking or biking distance of class.
- Will I have access to any additional facilities on Columbia College's campus?
Access to campus-based facilities and amenities are generally open to Evening Extended Program students. Feel free to visit the library, enjoy a meal in the dining hall, print out your next assignment in one of our computer labs, and more. At this time, however, Evening Extended Program students do not have access to our fitness center.
- Will I have a roommate?
That depends on the type of room that you select in our near-campus housing facility. If you'd like to defer cost, you're free to select a shared space in order to do just that. That being said, single rooms are also available in our facility if that's what you prefer.
- How do I apply for housing?
After you've been successfully admitted to the Evening Extended Program, and you've confirmed your enrollment with us, we'll send you a housing application to get that process started.
