Community college partnership grows
Central Ohio Technical College joins fold  

Mar 19, 2009  

Central Ohio Technical College has joined the Ohio University community college partnership program, the eighth institution to do so. With the agreement, COTC students can work toward bachelor's degrees through the university's first fully online degree program.

COTC President Bonnie L. Coe , Ohio University Vice Provost for Outreach Charles P. Bird and Executive Dean for Regional Campuses Dan Evans inked the agreement at a ceremony Thursday on COTC's Newark campus.

Spring will be the third quarter classes will be offered in the program, which provides flexibility for students to take some required courses on their local campuses at the community or technical college's tuition rate and others online from Ohio University at a cost of $153 per quarter credit hour. COTC students may opt to attend face-to-face classes at the Zanesville campus or Pickerington Center, which are located near two of COTC's four campuses.

The institutions work in partnership to provide student services, including working together to streamline financial aid so a student in the program can receive one-stop service from Ohio University.

Central Ohio Technical College is a two-year college chartered in 1971. Accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, COTC encourages the success and professional development of students, staff, faculty, and administrators, assisting them in achieving their maximum potential. With a growing enrollment of over 3,500 students, COTC operates campus locations in Newark, Coshocton, Knox and Pataskala.
