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.

Transfer seamlessly to any public four-year institution in Ohio, and even a few private universities. Our transfer degrees are the equivalent of the first two years of a bachelor’s degree, so you can enter the university as a junior. 

College Credit Plus

Through a partnership with Knox County public schools, high school students can complete COTC’s transfer-friendly Associate of Arts before they earn their diploma. Many graduates go on to universities, starting as a junior, to complete a bachelor’s degree in half the time and at half the cost.
