Return to COTC


We can review your college credits to see how close you are to completing a certificate and/or a degree.

  • If you applied to COTC before but didn’t attend any classes, please complete a new application.
  • If you attended COTC previously and it has been one year or more since you last attended classes with COTC, please complete a new application. Once you have completed your new application please reach out to our Academic Advising team.
  • If you previously attended COTC and were dismissed academically or had a cumulative GPA average below a 2.0, you may be eligible for either reinstatement or fresh start. Please contact our Academic Advising team to determine what your options might be.

We encourage all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for grants, scholarships, and loans.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Admissions Team.
