What is General Education?

Students attend classes on one of OCTC's campuses with the goal to transfer courses to a 4-year university. Students are responsible for the tuition costs of transfer courses and can receive college and high school credit for their work. Programs are open to juniors and seniors who must provide their own transportation, books, and supplies.

Courses Available

Owensboro Community and Technical College provides students a core foundation if they wish to transfer to a four-year university or they can acquire the skills necessary to enter the workforce. Within the Transfer Framework Agreement, all 60 hours taken to complete an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree are guaranteed to transfer to any Kentucky public institution.

High school students may also be eligible to complete courses toward other Academic Programs of Study. Students must meet the required Placement Guidelines for admission into certain courses and programs.
