Ohio State University-Newark Campus says

The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College are proud of the partnership that they have forged in offering an outstanding array of educational opportunities.

The Ohio State University at Newark offers the best of the Big Ten educational experience, including a rich research heritage and academic excellence. Students at Ohio State Newark can complete bachelor's degree programs in education, nursing (RN to BSN), general business, English, history and psychology. Students can also complete master's degrees in Early/Middle Childhood (M.Ed.) and in Integrated Teaching and Learning (M.A.), and can complete most of the coursework necessary for a master's degree in social work (M.A.). For other Ohio State degree programs, students can complete many of the course requirements here in Newark and then transfer to Columbus. Ohio State Newark is the largest of Ohio State's regional campuses with 50 distinguished faculty members and a student body of more than 2,100.

At Central Ohio Technical College, students can earn one of 31 associate degrees or certificates, or gain skills needed for career advancement. Many students attend a two-year institution to gain hands-on, technical experience and begin working in the field, or to transfer those credits toward a bachelor's program. COTC offers a low faculty-to-student ratio that appeals to many students. Headcount enrollment at COTC (including extended campus locations) reached 3,000 in autumn of 2005.

Both Ohio State Newark and COTC pride themselves on providing the student with personal attention, state-of-the-art technology labs, and credentialed and experienced faculty on a beautiful, technologically sophisticated campus. Choose the institution that best suits your needs and head down the path to success.

The University System of Ohio

To increase collaboration and cooperation among public colleges and universities, in August 2007 Ohio Governor Ted Strickland directed Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut to establish The University System of Ohio, which includes 14 public universities with 24 regional campuses, 23 community and technical colleges, and an adult workforce education and training network operating in more than 200 locations. With a mission to provide affordable, high quality higher education opportunities for all Ohioans, programs and curricula are designed to meet Ohioans' individual and collective needs for the 21st century. Governor Strickland also directed Chancellor Fingerhut to develop a 10-year plan for The University System of Ohio, which will set clear benchmarks and a timeline for advancing a collective system of higher education in the state.
