With our large selection of academic and technical programs, quality instruction, and low tuition rates, we offer international students superior academic opportunities and a unique cultural experience in a friendly atmosphere.

Some of the benefits at OCTC are:

  • Open admission policy 
  • Wide selection of academic and technical programs 
  • Supportive learning environment with small classes sizes 
  • Low cost tuition

OCTC is a comprehensive community college where students can earn the two year Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), or Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. OCTC is accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

Many of the courses offered at OCTC are the same first and second level courses offered at American universities. These courses are guaranteed to transfer to four-year universities in Kentucky and most transfer to colleges and universities nationwide. Also offered are many vocational and technical training programs.

I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about the wonderful opportunities here at our beautiful campus. If I could be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to speaking with you soon about opportunities here at OCTC.
