Counselor Resources

Counselor Connection
  • The Counselor Connection is a resource for high school counselors to check their students' application status online. The Counselor Connection cuts out the middle man and lets you instantly check each of your student's applications and any document they may be missing. If you do not see your school in the drop down bar and want access, or if you have forgotten your password, please email king_taylor1@columbusstate.edu, and we can quickly solve the problem.
Counselor Gazette
  • The Counselor Gazette is a monthly e-newsletter that contains important admission information such as upcoming dates, events, and changes in policy. The Gazette also highlights various news stories about Columbus State University and the city of Columbus. If you are not currently receiving the Counselor Gazette, please email king_taylor1@columbusstate.edu to be added to our subscription list.

Counselor Appreciation and Recognition Events

Columbus State University and the Office of Undergraduate Recruitment are pleased to host school counselors at events both on and off campus. The Counselor Appreciation and Recognition Events (C.A.R.E.) are counselor specific events we hold monthly throughout the academic year. Events will range from our Local Counselor Breakfast and Counselor Day to regional counselor events throughout the state of Georgia. We will provide information about these events on the website and in the Counselor Gazette throughout the year.
