• Central Ohio Technical College Agreement

    Through a dual admissions partnership with Central Ohio Technical College (COTC), COTC students who are earning an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree can complete a bachelor's degree at Ohio Dominican University.  Students admitted to the program must meet the admissions requirements at both institutions.  

    Another agreement that began in the Fall of 2011 still allows students who are earning COTC's Associate of Applied Business in Accounting to complete ODU's Bachelor of Science in Accounting.
    Students in the program will be expected to take at least one course per semester at ODU. Additionally, students completing the bachelor’s degree in accounting will be eligible to take the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination.

    Admission requirements for participation in the program

    Incoming freshman, those with no college credit, (outside of post secondary credit), must have a high school diploma with a cumulative GPA of 2.3 and a composite ACT score of 18.

    Transfer students, those who have accumulated college credit, or are currently attending college, are admissible to the program upon obtaining at least 10 transferrable semester credits with a cumulative GPA of 2.5. (Transferrable hours are those in which a grade of C- or higher was earned as well as were non-developmental.)

    Getting started in the program

    In order to participate in the program, students must meet the eligibility requirements listed above. Students also need to be currently enrolled at COTC in the Associate of Arts, or Associate of Science or Associate of Applied Business in Accounting Technology program.
