Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take classes online or face to face?
At COTC students have the flexibility to take classes face-to-face and online.
Can I pursue a bachelor’s degree after I complete an associate degree?
Students interested in continuing on to pursue a bachelor’s degree can consider transferring to a four-year college or university. COTC has several transfer agreements with four-year colleges.
Four-year colleges and universities often have opportunities for students to create a custom degree. Degrees that are custom are often referred to as interdisciplinary study.
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.
