The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Veteran Review: I attended COTC and graduated with an Associates in Nursing. I can say that it was very cumbersome to attend COTC as a veteran. I utilized my Tuition assistance and needed to "push them along" the entire way. Every semester I had to contact veterans affairs and tell them what I needed them to do to approve TA. My understanding is that they needed prompted in every way and every time I needed something completed to allow me access to my tuition assistance. This includes having to pay for a semester out of pocket do to their delay in assistance and lack of ability to complete my necessary needs on their own. From my understanding, they should understand this. I am currently attempting to apply for my bachelors 2 semesters later and I am unable to receive tuition assistance, because COTC has not submitted my graduated status to TA and I am unable to attend classes as a consequence to said incident. All said and done: If you are a veteran, be prepared to coax COTC along to get what you need.

Good College, but Ill be glad to be out. If I can... I have been ready to graduate (Creditwise) since Spring of this year and they told me that I have to take these 3 classes. I gave a course sub to one of them and took the other 2. I finished and they said I failed (Which I did). I told them I have more than enough credits to graduate and they said I dont. Just let me pass my classes so I can get out of here please?

I was here to get a degree in Early Childhood. I live in Delaware, Ohio but I liked the class sizes here. I was also very happy with the fact that many classes were online as well as in the evening and on weekends. Being someone who works full-time, this was perfect over my schedule. Over the years, I have watched the number of online classes dwindle. Now they are doing away with not only evening and weekend classes, but summer classes. They took away the entire summer semester in my field, so not only was I being forced to take classes in campus during my work hours, but I was losing the option to take classes during the summer. I'm a teacher and I'm off in the summer. COTC has really let me down. It used to be a college for the working adult. They are just following where the money is. I registered at another school and will not being recommending COTC to anyone I know. Such a shame.

For those who are complaining of the graduation rate, remember this is a two year school. Most students go to a technical school to get started and then transfer on to a 4 year degree or higher.So far my experience has been excellent. Good staff people who care about your personal development.Newsflash to those who are complaining, COLLEGE GIVES YOU WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT.
