Online Campus

Welcome to the Online Campus for Central Ohio Technical College!

At COTC, we are proud of our commitment to supporting our students in a number of ways. One of the ways we do this is by offering a variety of classes that allow students to study WHEN they want, WHERE they want and in a format that works best for them. We recognize that for many of today’s learners, “traditional” college courses just aren’t an option… we invite you to explore what makes COTC’s online campus an affordable, accessible and exciting place to start or continue your education!


Teaching and Learning Center

What We Do…

The Teaching and Learning Center at Central Ohio Technical College was created to support excellence in teaching and learning through a variety of professional development initiatives. The TLC seeks to support faculty and staff professional development through strategic programming, coaching, mentorship, and by leveraging peer-to-peer communities of learning. 


Plans of Study

All academic certificates and degrees at COTC have a plan of study that outline what courses need to be taken. Plans of study are reviewed annually and are updated as-needed to remain current and in line with industry standards, the job market and to meet regulatory/accreditation requirements. 

Students who wish to use financial aid must be certificate or degree seeking and be enrolled in a plan of study to use financial aid.


Perkins V

​The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was signed into law by President Trump on July 31, 2018. This bipartisan measure reauthorized the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) and continued Congress’ commitment in providing nearly $1.3 billion annually for quality career and technical education (CTE) programs for individuals seeking to succeed in a knowledge- and skills-based economy.

Perkins V represents an important opportunity to expand opportunities for every student to explore, choose and follow career and technical education programs of study and career pathways to earn credentials of value.
