Columbia Southern University (CSU) recognizes that our students need to remain up-to-date with the latest information and technology in their fields. In order to continue to provide our students with an exceptional online learning experience, we will be upgrading from our current version of Blackboard. This upgrade will take place April 19 through 20. During this time, Blackboard will be unavailable to all users, including students, faculty and university staff. Any additional information regarding the upgrade will be communicated through the CSU Communicator during the coming months. Students with questions regarding this upgrade are encouraged to contact Student Services by email at email@example.com or by phone at 1.800.977.8449 ext. 6525.
