Pathways that and
Start at OCtech
at a Four-Year University
OCtech is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. That’s why we have created specialized transfer pathways to four-year universities. Courses offered from the list of 86 transferrable courses will transfer to any South Carolina public college or university and to most private colleges. Starting a degree program here allows you to save money, have more one-on-one attention, and gain a smoother transition into a four-year college. If you already have an associate’s degree and are ready to start work on a four-year degree, take your general education courses here. You’ll save money and enjoy the convenience of being close to home. Many general education classes can also be taken online.
the only difference is COST
Comparing tuition cost per semester to a typical in-state four-year institution, OCtech can save you thousands of dollars.
