Earn Credit for What You Know
Not all learning happens in the classroom.
Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) recognizes that college-level learning can happen outside of a college classroom. We value your life experience by turning it into college credit that can be applied toward a certificate or degree.
If you have an industry-recognized credential, professional licensure, significant work experience, and/or complete an approved exam in a designated subject area, you may be eligible for college credit without taking a college course.

We can review your college credits to see how close you are to completing a certificate and/or a degree.
College Credit Plus
If you’re a high school student now
College Credit Plus (CCP) is an opportunity to earn both high school and college credits at the same time — at no cost to you. Students who are eligible to participate in CCP can pursue, and in some cases complete, a certificate or an associate degree while in high school.
