Institutional Accreditation

An Owensboro Community and Technical College degree measures up.

Owensboro Community and Technical College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, to award the associate degree. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Owensboro Community and Technical College. 

Why is accreditation important?

Accreditation is important for two reasons. First, it assures Owensboro Community and Technical College students that they are receiving an education that meets the exemplary standards of this independent organization that also accredits the University of Kentucky, the University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University, Brescia University and Kentucky Wesleyan College.

Secondly, since OCTC is accredited to award associate degrees, this degree is automatically recognized and accepted by all public or private four-year colleges and universities in Kentucky. Please visit the transfer page, see an advisor, or visit the transfer center to explore your options.

Please contact Dr. Scott Williams  for questions and information regarding institutional accreditation.
