First-Time College Students

Who is considered a first-time college student?


Students who have never attended a college or university are considered first-time college students.

Additionally, students who complete college classes while in middle/high school (through College Credit Plus) are also considered first-time college students after high school graduation.

As a first-time college student, you may be nervous about beginning your college journey. Central Ohio Technical College is dedicated to meeting you wherever you are in life and guiding you every step of the way as you complete your educational goals.  And whether you’re beginning as a middle- or high school student, recent high school grad or someone who’s been away from the classroom for a while, you’ll find a home in our smaller-size classes. Join us, and see how far you can go.
