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.
