Why should students log into C-STAR?

C-STAR is like a Facebook page for your success at Columbia State. It was created to make your life easier, make things simpler, and put most of what you need in one place. We encourage you to access C-STAR several times a week.

When you go to C-STAR you can:

      • Learn immediately when there's a concern about your academic performance – or something else that is interfering with your success.

      • Schedule time online to meet with an advisor, tutor, instructor, financial aid counselor... or any of the other people put in place to help you succeed. An appointment is only a click away!

      • Quickly discover which support services are available to you, where they are, and how best to reach out to them.

      • Receive notifications and reminders to let you know something needs your attention.

      • Learn the next steps to take to proceed in your academic path or to resolve a concern. You can check in on your own progress as often as you need to. It is open all the time and you are encouraged to check it several times a week.
