Central Ohio Technical College has begun to prepare for reaffirmation of its institutional accreditation, which will be completed during the 2018-19 academic year.

In higher education, accreditation is recognition by a certified accrediting body that a college or university meets standards of performance and planning that students and the public can rely upon. In the United States, regional bodies, whose members are higher education institutions, award accreditation through a peer review process. For Ohio, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is the accrediting body.

The HLC reviews colleges and universities every 10 years to ensure that they continue to meet the criteria for accreditation. Accreditation affects many aspects of the college, including financial aid eligibility, course transfers, and the overall value of a degree. COTC has been accredited by the HLC since 1975.  A team from the HLC will visit COTC on November 26 and 27, 2018, to evaluate whether the college continues to meet the requirements of accreditation.

This page provides current information on the reaffirmation process.
