College classes at NSB Kings Bay

Work toward your degree at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay with classes from Columbia College. Six class sessions are offered each year, so you can go at a pace that suits you.

In addition to classes on base, you can take online classes at any time. Since some of the classes required for your degree are not offered on base at NSB Kings Bay, you will need to take some classes online or at one of our other locations in your area in order to complete your chosen program.

Commencement update

With the declarations of emergency at every level of government related to the Coronavirus and recommendations to restrict gatherings to small numbers of people, Columbia College has made the difficult decision to postpone its 2020 Ceremony at NSB Kings Bay.

To accommodate any students who were unable to walk in their Commencement ceremonies, the college will host two ceremonies on December 19, 2020 at the main campus instead of the one ceremony that is traditionally held. Students can also elect to walk in their location’s 2021 ceremony as well.

"Our commitment to the wellbeing of our students, faculty, staff and guests who would be joining us on campus is our top priority. Cancelling these events is an unfortunate but necessary measure to limit the transmission of the virus," said Dr. Scott Dalrymple, President of Columbia College. "The opportunity to celebrate our students and their academic achievements is extremely important to us. We are looking forward to the members of the Class of 2020 joining the Columbia College Alumni Association and appreciate the sacrifices they have made to get to this point."

If you have questions about these options, please email Thank you flexibility and understanding during these unprecedented times and be well.
