Columbia Southern University

An Online University with Unlimited Possibilities

Superior Service. Flexible Programs. Exceptional Value.

This is the CSU promise. At CSU, we offer completely online degree programs, open enrollment, affordable tuition rates, and a flexible learning style designed to accommodate your life.  Choose from associate, bachelor, master, doctoral or certificate programs in a variety of fields including business administration, fire science, criminal justice administration, occupational safety and health, and more.

One of the nation’s first completely online universities, Columbia Southern University (CSU) was developed to meet the demand for alternatives to the traditional university experience. All degree programs are offered completely online, giving you the flexibility to fit your education around career and family commitments.

With our online university, you can take schedule shifting and time management conflicts out of the equation. Open enrollment and self-paced programs make rearranging your life to attend a class or take a test a thing of the past.

The firefighter with an unpredictable schedule, the soldier shifting from place to place to preserve our freedom, the single mother working hard to advance her career and support her children – these are the faces of CSU. That’s why CSU delivers 24 hour access to course assignments, online forums, web lectures, interactive software, and audio and visual examples.
