Benefits for Columbus State Graduates

Students who graduate with an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree will be guaranteed admission to Otterbein.  Some academic programs may require separate applications beyond the university admissions application.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all courses in the 2+2 programs.  The student may be required to retake any course in which they received a grade of “C” where there is a higher minimum grade required for Otterbein University students pursuing the same academic program.

Columbus State students could also choose to use their college credit from Columbus State to finish a degree completion program, or they may choose from any of the more than 70 majors and 44 minors available during the day.
