At COTC, students create lasting friendships and opportunities through hands-on experience and smaller class sizes where professors get to know and care about their students and their goals.
The career development office at COTC offers a free major exploration and career planning assessment for college students called Focus 2. Respond to a series of career-related questions to be matched with programs at COTC. Then explore What Can I Do With This Major to learn about career fields and employers in those fields.
If you need more help or prefer to discuss your goals with a person, schedule an appointment with a member of the admissions team. We love assisting students with their college and career planning.
COTC’s tuition is already below average of all community colleges in Ohio, but we make attending college even more affordable with scholarships and grants. COTC awards more than $1 million in scholarships each year thanks to the generosity of our many donors who believe in the transformative power of a COTC degree or certificate.
The Coshocton Promise guarantees that tuition will be covered for qualifying students. This promise of free college is initially possible through a partnership between COTC and the Coshocton Foundation’s Clarence and Grace Miller Scholarship endowment.
High school students who participate in the College Credit Plus (CCP) program at COTC may be eligible for CCP Scholarship, which covers up to half the cost of tuition.
