Create an Application Account
Future students who have never applied to COTC will need to create an account before they can complete an application.
Students who have previously applied and/or attended COTC may not need to create an account. Those students can simply log in with their email and password.
Verify Account Creation Email
When students create an account to apply to COTC, they will be asked to verify the email they used to create the account before they can begin and complete their application.
Complete the COTC Application
Students can complete their application by signing in with their email and password.
The COTC application is not the same as a selective healthcare application.
Students interested in healthcare programs that require selection have an additional application and steps to complete.

Request High School Transcripts
Students should contact their high school to request their official transcripts be sent to COTC.
Transcripts can be submitted as follows:
Mailed to COTC:
The Gateway – Student Records
1179 University Drive
Newark, OH 43055.
Emailed directly from high school personnel to firstname.lastname@example.org.
High school transcripts can be used to allow students to place out of certain coursework or into higher-level coursework.
Student SSID numbers (not Social Security numbers, district ID numbers, or any other identifier) are the means by which student funding is tracked, reported and disbursed. Typically, we have found that the majority of districts put SSIDs on their transcripts. However, some do not. If your district does not report SSID numbers on student transcripts, please provide it to our Records Support Specialist, Robin Champ, at email@example.com.
High school students who have an IEP or 504 must self-identify to colleges. We highly recommend students on an IEP or 504 connect with our Director of Disability Services, Connie Zang. The IEP or 504 accommodations a student has in high school do not automatically transfer to college. Accommodations can often still be provided for high school students taking college courses through CCP, but are assessed case by case by Disability Services. Please visit our Disability Services page for more information.
CCP Students can receive up to $1000 per semester after high school graduation. Whether your student wants to get into a career quickly or complete the first two years of their bachelor’s degree, COTC’s CollegeCredit Plus (CCP) Scholarship can save them thousands of dollars on their college education.
