Preferred Pathways now paved to nine colleges

Did you know that Columbus State’s original Preferred Pathway, which led exclusively to The Ohio State University, has now been extended to a total of nine universities?

students on campus

Along with Ohio State, there are Preferred Pathways to Franklin University, Ohio University, Otterbein University, Ohio Dominican University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Miami University, Bowling Green State University, and Capital University. The pathways allow students to pre-major for a particular degree at the four-year college they plan to attend, ensuring they take the correct courses to apply to their future bachelor’s degree.

For students to become a part of the Preferred Pathway Program, they must be a current student and be added to the appropriate blackboard/transfer community for that four-year institution. Students are welcome to participate in more than one community. It is here that the four-year partners will communicate the information needed, important updates, and provide access to their university’s resources. You can read more about Columbus State’s Preferred Pathway program online here.
