Associate of Technical Studies

Why study Services Technology : History?

The One-Year Option allows graduates of Ohio Technical Centers (OTC) who complete a 600 or greater hour program and obtain an industry-recognized credential(s) to earn a block of technical credit toward an Associate of Technical Study (Type B). The goal of this Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) initiative is to create a statewide agreement for awarding technical credit in addition to current statewide agreements such as Career-Technical Assurance Guides (CTAGs). Eligible students will be awarded 20-30 semester credit hours of block credit for the approved OTC program toward the relevant 60 semester hour ATS degree.

BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM

  • Complete your associate degree with 30-40 credits
  • Flexible class options (daytime, evening, online)
  • Advance your career and earnings potential
  • Complete the ATS and be eligible for admission to the Bachelor's of Technical & Applied Studies in Applied Administration

Admission Requirements

  • Completed a 600+ clock hour program in business at an Ohio Technical Center
  • Hold an industry-recognized credential(s) approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education. Approved OTC programs: Barbering, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education
  • Meet the credentialing pathway requirements as determined by the applicable credit affirmation team. The list of currently approved pathways and credentialing requirements can be found on the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s One-Year Option webpage.
This general degree is a good fit for those with a professional certification or credential in job positions where the employer is neutral as to the degree earned.
The UC Clermont campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. We are relatively small and our faculty-to-student ratio is low. You will find small class size and personal interaction with your instructors create the ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge. Plus, our tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.
You must complete an application for degree and receive a pre-certification from your academic advisor the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor or Student Success and Retention Services (513-732-5319) for specific information well in advance of your final semester.

You must be in good academic standing at the college or university you last attended. We accept transfer applications all year long and you may start any semester, provided your transcripts arrive in time to be evaluated before the start of the semester you wish to attend.

If you have not taken college-level mathematics or English, you will need to take the placement test.

Other UC students may transfer into Clermont College by completing the application for change in college and program form available from most UC admissions offices (including ours, 513-732-5319). You are urged to see your advisor before transferring into a different major to minimize any impact on your degree progress.

You must demonstrate English proficiency. You must also meet admissions deadlines and visa requirements, and provide documentation of sufficient funds before we can complete your admission. Please call the International Admissions Office (513-556-2069) for details, or email international.admissions@uc.edu with questions.
