Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently in the online MBA program at Columbia College and have found it to be a high quality education at a reasonable price. My opinion of the surrounding area may be a bit biased since I've lived near the home campus of the college for many years and obtained my undergraduate degree at the home campus as well in 1999. As a returning "nontraditional" student, I would highly recommend this school and MBA program.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The class sizes are very reasonable. As a person looking to obtain certification in special education with a focus on the secondary level, I feel that the teachers are very helpful in addressing my needs. Most classes for special education are focused on primary grades, but if you inform the instructor of your desire to teach something other than primary they differentiate their instruction to reach all students, not just the majority. Some instructors are excellent and putting what they preach into practice in the college classroom. I have found most classes easy, but I think that is because the instructors are very helpful and want you to succeed.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

I have had a wonderful experience with every applicable aspect of my education at Columbia College and would highly recommend it to anyone. With regards to campus life at Columbia, I have always been an online student so I cannot fairly assess campus life.

The MBA program at the Rolla campus is new and we are the first class. It has been difficult to keep our group together because we have the minimum number of students required to conduct a course and some of our group have taken online courses. The next group that starts in this program will have an excellent chance to finish much quicker than we did. The more students that enroll at this campus will increase the odds of a successful program.
