Non-Traditional Student Orientation - Columbus State University


Non-Traditional Student Orientation

Welcome to the Non-Traditional Student Orientation!

A non-traditional student is defined a student who has been out of high school for more than 5 years or those transferring from another institution with less than thirty hours. Please read and thoroughly follow the steps below to register.

All students are required to complete a Non-Traditional Orientation session prior to enrolling in classes.

Once you have completed all required ROAR Orientation components and have attended your scheduled session, your academic advisor will then advise you on which classes to take during your first semester.

The ROAR Orientation program is assisted by current Columbus State University students who serve as a great liaison for our campus community.
