COVID-19 Updates

Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) is following Governor Mike DeWine’s recommendations to take immediate action to minimize the risk of exposure and slow the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our communities.

Due to COVID-19, COTC is not sending faculty into partnering high schools and has modified course offerings for students. Please review our academic engagement plan for more information. 

Policy changes have been made by the State of Ohio due to COVID-19. New students for the 20-21/21-22 school year are eligible to participate in CCP if they have a high school (unweighted) GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

COTC is providing placement testing for students on a limited basis for eligibility and admission consideration to CCP. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we prefer to test students remotely; however, some on-campus testing is available if needed. Connect with an Admissions Representative to determine whether you need placement testing:
