Graduation - Columbus State University



You've passed the tests and earned the degree. Five in-person ceremonies at Columbus State's Lumpkin Center will mark a week filled with other commencement-related activities and celebrations for our Spring 2023 graduates. For those who cannot join us in person, the university will continue to live-stream these ceremonies so families, friends and Cougars everywhere can share in your special day.
