Columbus State University is transitioning from LiveText to Tk20.

What is Tk20?

Tk20 is a repository for university data that are collected for various purposes; such as, demonstrating the quality of our academic programs, improving teaching and learning, and compiling data for national, state, and local reporting.  Tk20 facilitates the performance assessment and field placement processes and provides a tool for candidates to document their development, competencies, accomplishments, and progression through their preparation program.

Tk20 is also great for students, as they can build course and performance artifacts electronically online in a portfolio that stays with them for years - up to 7 years. This is a great benefit for those seeking employment or wanting to further their educational advancement.

Students needing to purchase Tk20 may find the following information useful:

  • The one-time cost is $149.50 at the campus bookstore or $110 if purchased directly through Tk20.
  • Financial aid may pay for the account if purchased through the bookstore.
  • Tk20 allows for 2-3 business days to activate the account after the account has been registered on  CSU’s TK20 page .
  • Student accounts are active for seven (7) years.
