Renovation 2020-2021: What’s New

Renovation 2020-2021: What’s New

The Pataskala campus has reopened for classes after a $4.2 million renovation. The project included a complete renovation of 16,000 square feet of the building’s interior. Key upgrades include:

  • Nursing and allied health skills labs
  • Science and computer labs
  • Digital media technology lab
  • Classroom and academic support spaces
  • Student collaboration spaces
  • Testing center
  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and fire suppression systems

The renovation enables COTC to expand academic offerings in the high-demand fields of nursing and information technology, among possible others. The renovated facility’s increased capacity will allow more students convenient access to COTC’s affordable associate degrees and certificates and help local employers fill demand for skilled workers. Students benefit from modern classroom, lab and study spaces conducive to learning in a technology-driven world.


Degrees and Certificates at Pataskala

COTC offers several transfer degrees and career-ready associate degrees and certificates in full at the Pataskala campus* through a combination of in-person and remote learning.** 

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 college credit – some finishing a certificate or associate degree before they earn their high school diploma – and saving thousands on their college tuition.

Career-ready Associate Degrees

Gain the skills for a new career or career advancement in as little as 16 months:


Many four-year colleges and universities will transfer most if not all COTC credit coursework into an established program at the four-year institution.  An articulation agreement between COTC and a four-year institution is a guarantee to the COTC student that specific coursework taken at COTC will enable that student to be granted transfer credit into a particular program at the four-year institution. Learn more about COTC Articulation Agreements.

Career-ready Certificates

Gain the skills for a career in one or two semesters. COTC certificates also count toward an associate degree, helping students advance on a long-term career path:

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.

All students who apply are admitted to COTC, and students who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid will automatically be considered for scholarships; there is no separate scholarship application to complete. Students who enroll for a minimum of six credit hours per semester in a degree or certificate program will be eligible for scholarships.
