There are so many people at OCTC that are there to open up doors for their students and help make them the person that they’re meant to be. I don’t know where I’d be without them.

My experience at OCTC is meaningful to me because of the encouragement from the faculty and staff and the support system I received from them. I was letting a math class determine my future and I’m glad I overcame my fear.

A Great Value

Afraid you can't afford college? Well, you can. With the lowest tuition in Kentucky, financial aid options, and a helping hand to guide you through the process, we have you covered.

For the cost of one year at a university, you could go for two years here. That two-year degree can open up a new career, or complete the first half of your bachelor’s. Ready to learn more?

Owensboro Community and Technical College has partnered with BankMobile to deliver your financial aid refund. For more information review BankMobile’s Refund Choices. You may view our institution’s contract with BankMobile, a Division of Customers Bank.
