Pataskala Campus


Exterior Pataskala campus building

Located on the western edge of Licking County, the Pataskala campus brings many of COTC’s associate degree and certificates closer to Columbus and surrounding areas. Following an extensive renovation, the Pataskala campus now provides the opportunity to complete several associate degrees and certificates in addition to starting any of COTC’s career-ready programs and transfer degrees. 

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.

To meet with an admissions representative, please schedule an appointment and dedicated time to talk about your college and career goals. Email us at or call us at 740.366.9222.

Degrees and Certificates

COTC offers several transfer degrees and career-ready associate degrees and certificates in full at the Pataskala campus, with more programs on the way. Individual general education courses for COTC’s 50+ programs or transfer-friendly credit to other state universities are also available.



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.
