NEWARK, Ohio, June 12, 2017– We know that for many adults going back to school seems impossible. They have busy lives with work, children and other responsibilities. That's why Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) is trying to make completing a degree easier. COTC is offering degree programs for working adults that can be completed by taking evening and weekend classes on its extended campuses.
The 321 Countdown program will start spring semester 2018 offering business management technology and accounting technology degree programs in Coshocton, Mount Vernon and Pataskala. Students will attend classes three days a week, two during the week and one on the weekend, and at the end of two years, they will have the one degree they have been working toward.
"We are excited to offer this opportunity to students," said COTC Director of Enrollment Management & Gateway Operations Robin Washington. "We know that time is limited. This program lays out the path to a degree by showing students what courses they'll take to get their degree completed in a timely manner."
More degree programs will be offered in this format in the future. The first cohort begins January 8, 2018.
COTC was ranked number one in Ohio and number 19 in the nation by PayScale in its 2016-17 College Salary Report ranking the best community and career colleges by salary potential. COTC is a fully accredited, public college dedicated to providing high-quality, accessible programs of technical education in response to current and emerging employment needs. COTC is the only technical college in Ohio operating four full-service campus locations: Newark, Coshocton, Knox and Pataskala.
