Many four year colleges and universities will afford the COTC student the opportunity to transfer most if not all of their COTC credit course work into an established program at the four-year institution. An articulation agreement between COTC and a four year institution is a guarantee to the COTC student that specific coursework taken at COTC will enable that student to be granted transfer credit into a particular program at the four-year institution.
How an Articulation Agreement Works
Each institution follows their own admissions process. A COTC student who wishes to transfer to a four-year institution would contact the Admissions Office at the four-year institution and follow their process for application to the four-year school or see the link below to find dates for transfer representative visits from our partner institutions. During the application process, the student must self-identify as a Central Ohio Technical College graduate/former student and indicate a desire to evoke the articulation agreement between the two institutions. The four-year college Admissions staff will then inform the student of the steps that must be taken for this process to be implemented. For further information on these agreements, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs at 740.364.9543.
