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:
- LPN-to-Associate Degree Nursing (spring semester)

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.

- Practical Nursing Certificate (autumn semester)
