Welcome to High School Options 

COTC is committed to providing high school students the opportunity to expand curricular options by earning college credit while still in high school.  Through the High School Options programs, students can engage in higher learning by enrolling in a college course on one of COTC's four campuses or earning college credit for a course taken at the high school.  Effective beginning the 2014-2015 school year, the $20.00 application fee is no longer charged to High School Options students.

Our dedicated staff is here to help you navigate through the college-going process and answer any questions along the way. Students have the opportunity to enroll at COTC through one of the following options:
