Columbia Southern University Online – What sets them apart? Columbia Southern University online was created as an alternative to the traditional university experience. One of the first online universities, all degree programs are available online only. Columbia Southern University’s relatively inexpensive tuition and flexible education options, like open enrollment and self-paced learning, make it ideal for people who already have a full schedule but want to expand their employment opportunities. Columbia Southern University Accreditation Since Columbia Southern University is entirely online, the school is working hard to make sure that its degrees carry just as much weight with potential employers as any traditional school. Columbia Southern University online ensures that all of its online programs are fully accredited and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This means that every one of Columbia Southern University’s online certificate and degree programs have been approved by their respective council, so you can feel confident that taking relatively low-priced courses from CSU does not mean sacrificing quality. It is important to note, however, that Columbia Southern University is not regionally accredited.

A number of universities accept DETC accredited courses, so taking courses at Columbia may be a great way for you to save money in the long-run.
