College Policies 

 Content Editor Web Part

Central Ohio Technical College approves, issues, and maintains all college wide policies using a consistent process and format. A college-wide process provides continuity, ease of access and understanding, and transparent guidance to the college community. Contact Jan Tomlinson, Executive Assistant to the President, at jtomlins@cotc.edu or 740.364.9510 with questions about policy content or how a policy applies.

College policies provide specific direction for operations, administration, or programs. Policies are applicable college-wide and are developed through the College Policy Process and adopted by President’s Cabinet which may additionally take them to the Board of Trustees at its discretion. Policies enhance the college's mission and operational efficiency, mandate action or constraints, and must be consistent with relevant statues, regulations, bylaws, or rules. Interim policies may be approved when regulatory, accreditation, or other urgent needs require the policy to be in place before the college’s policy formulation process can be finalized.

The College Policies web site is furnished to provide convenient access to college-wide policies. However, the web site does not contain an exhaustive list of college policies. Individual units may maintain additional policies applying only to that unit that are not in conflict with college-wide policies. Such policies do not override college-wide policies. It is the responsibility of all individuals to identify and familiarize themselves with all college and unit policies.
