• Columbia State's E-Campus

    Columbia State offers a variety of ways to learn especially for the busy individual. Watch the video to learn more.


The demands of work and family can make the more traditional, on-campus model of higher education impractical. For those students whose busy schedules require a more flexible path, Columbia State offers avenues by which you can take courses and get your degree.

The most popular avenue is through Columbia State’s Online Campus, with courses developed and taught by Columbia State instructors. Another is through a program offered by the TNeCampus.org, with courses developed and taught by instructors at all TBR colleges. This means, your instructor may be teaching from any of the schools within the TBR system.

In addition, you will find other types of courses offered through the e-Campus. Hybrid Courses, Desktop Video Conference (DVC) which are part web-based and part traditional classroom, I-TV courses, and Web-Enhanced Learning are each different types of courses you will find on the course registration page. Below, you can find information about how those courses work and how you find them on the web!

Complaint Resolution Policies and Procedures for Non-Tennessee Resident Students in State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement States, commonly known as SARA.

Student complaints relating to consumer protection laws that involve distance learning education offered under the terms and conditions of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), must first be filed with the institution to seek resolution.

Complainants not satisfied with the outcome of the Institution’s internal process may appeal, within two years of the incident about which the complaint is made, to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.

For purposes of this process, a complaint shall be defined as a formal assertion in writing that the terms of SARA or the laws, standards or regulations incorporated by the SARA Policies and Standards have been violated by the institution operating under the terms of SARA.

For a list of SARA member States, please visit the NC-SARA website. Students residing in non-SARA states should consult their respective State of residence for further instruction for filing a complaint.

A Great Place To Start. Invest in Columbia State.
