In autumn 2011, The Ohio State University at Marion and the Delaware Campus of Columbus State Community College (CSCC) launched a new educational partnership. Through this innovative arrangement, selected Ohio State courses are offered at the CSCC Delaware campus.
New and current Ohio State University students who wish to take advantage of the partnership will have a variety of options to choose from, including enrolling in Ohio State and/or Columbus State courses at Delaware and transitioning in time to taking only Ohio State courses at Delaware, or to Ohio State Marion or another Ohio State campus in order to complete their baccalaureate degree.
Columbus State Community College students planning to eventually transfer to Ohio State to complete their baccalaureate degree will have the opportunity to get a head start on their degree by taking Ohio State courses in Delaware or Marion in addition to their Columbus State courses.
At Ohio State Marion, students may complete first and second year general education curriculum, including the first two years most Engineering programs, as well as all courses for Ohio State baccalaureate degrees in English, Early and Middle Childhood Education, General Business Management, History, Psychology and the RN-to-BSN completion program.
Ohio State regional campus students may simply switch to the Columbus campus any time after they have earned a minimum of 30 semester or 45 quarter credit hours after high school graduation, assuming they are in good academic standing and meet the entrance requirements for their particular major.
