Columbia Alumni

Whether you are a recent graduate or attended Columbia a number of years ago, Columbia Alumni represent a vast and dynamic community that stretches to the four corners of the globe. With over 9000 graduates enjoying careers as Pastors, missionaries, trades people, homemakers, doctors, teachers, writers, politicians and more, Columbia Alumni are making a difference in the world for the Kingdom of God. One of the defining elements of Columbia Bible College is the strong that community students experience while attending. We want to ensure that this community continues well past graduation so we have developed a number of ways for our Alumni to stay connected.


The Columbia Bible College A-Card is available to any alumni that have received a certificate, diploma or degree, or have completed a minimum of 31 credit hours.  Alumni who are local or who will be visiting the area are invited to register for their A-Card and then stop by campus and pick it up at their convenience.  Our apologies, but we're unable to put A-Cards in the mail.

A-Card holders have access to the following services:

Free membership to the Library to access over 50,000 books and other resources. A prox card for an annual fee of $25 will allow access to the college library during the Library's opening hours in the evenings and on Saturdays.

Present your A-Card in the Dining Hall and receive one free coffee or tea per day.

Free first-time class audit and 50% off qualifying Continuing Education events (Diploma and Degree Alumni only).

Free membership to the Columbia Fitness Center (September - April) and free admission to Bearcats home games. Please note there is a $25/year charge if you wish to use the Fitness Center in the evenings (prox card required).
