​​Central Ohio Technical College currently offers a wide variety of distance learning courses and students may complete the Associate of Applied Business degree in Business Management Technology program requirements entirely via online learning. Out-of-state students enrolled in a COTC distance learning course should first attempt to resolve any issues or complaints with Central Ohio Technical College. However, if an issue cannot be resolved internally, the student may file a complaint against Central Ohio Technical College with their state by referring to a list of State Agencies in compliance with federal Department of Education regulations.

The student may also contact COTC's accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (see below for more information regarding HLC).

Central Ohio Technical College is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Federal regulations implementing the 1992 Higher Education Act Amendments require that accrediting agencies allow for public comment on the qualifications of those institutions accredited.

The Commission invites interested parties to submit written, signed comments on Central Ohio Technical College. The public is invited to submit comments regarding COTC online or by mail to:
