College Policies

​​​​​​​Nursing student outside LeFevre HallCentral 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 Executive Leadership team 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. Please note that individual units may maintain departmental governing documents/standard operating procedures applying only to that unit that are not in conflict with college-wide policies. Such documents do not override college-wide policies. It is the responsibility of all individuals to identify and familiarize themselves with all college policies.
