Ariel Hall on COTC’s Knox campus was designed with technology and sustainability in mind. Flexible classrooms and state-of-the-art laboratories reflect the college’s commitment to learning on the leading edge while Ariel Hall’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification demonstrates a commitment to efficiency. And when you enroll, COTC is committed to unlocking the full potential in you.

Whether you prefer on-campus classes, virtual or a combination, COTC now offers five delivery options – on campus, hybrid, hy-flex, remote and online – as we build on our commitment to meet students where they are.

Degrees and Certificates

COTC offers some career-ready associate degrees and certificates in full at the Knox campus. Individual general education courses for COTC’s 50+ programs or transfer-friendly credit to other state universities are also available. Plus, high school students participate in our College Credit Plus program earning transfer-friendly associate degrees – some finishing before they earn their high school diploma – and saving thousands on their college tuition.



Regular admission to a degree or certificate program is open to all who have earned a high school diploma, completed homeschooling at the secondary level or passed the General Education Development (GED) test. COTC may also grant prior-learning credit for certain life and career experiences. New students must submit the free application for admission.
