How quickly can I complete the medical coding degree program?
The amount of time it takes a student to complete the Medical Coding certificates and/or associate degree depends upon how many courses are taken per semester.
Students who attend full time (and take 3-5 classes on average per semester) will complete quicker than students who attend part time (and take 1-2 classes on average per semester).
Students can complete a Medical Coding certificate in just two semesters and an associate degree in less than two years.
Students who complete a certificate in Medical Coding have earned credits that can be applied toward the Associate of Applied Science in Medical Coding.
Where can I find a list of classes (plan of study) for the program I want to study?
The courses students need to take to complete a certificate or degree are listed in a plan of study.
Can I take classes online or face-to-face?
Students pursuing any healthcare degree should expect to take classes face-to-face to experience hands-on learning. Some general education classes may be offered online.
What type of financial assistance is available to help me pay for college?
COTC awards $1 million in scholarships to students each year.
Every student is encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for grants, scholarships and loans.
Students who complete a FAFSA are automatically considered for some scholarships. Other scholarships require an application.
