3. Complete the COTC Application

You can complete your application by signing in with your email and password. 

The COTC application is not the same as a selective healthcare application.

If you are interested in a healthcare program that requires selection, you must attend a program information meeting and complete an additional application and steps. Selective healthcare programs are:

  • Diagnostic Medial Sonography Technology
  • Nursing
  • Radiologic Science Technology
  • Surgical Technology
