The Ohio Valley College of Technology maintains an open admissions policy whereby all qualified candidates are given the opportunity to enroll, as long as the enrollment levels have not already maxed out. There are three essential requirements for being fully considered for admission to Ohio Valley College of Technology. First, the applicant must prove that they have graduated from high school or received an equivalent diploma (a GED); second, the applicant must visit the school campus and conduct a tour with one of the admissions staff members, at which point more can be learnt about the student’s goals and how they match up with the program offerings at Ohio Valley College of Technology; and third, the applicant must arrange for a tuition planning interview with a school administrator.

Applications for admissions—which are available online—are accepted by Ohio Valley College of Technology on a rolling basis throughout the year, so timing is not quite as much of a big deal as it is with other schools. All the same, an early start is better especially with regards to applying for financial aid, which takes time to process.

Financial Aid

Financial aid opportunities are available for qualifying students at Ohio Valley College of Technology, and almost all aid is disbursed on the basis of need and/or academic merit. To be considered for financial aid a student must submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid sufficiently ahead of time, and indeed (as mentioned above) it is recommended that such forms be submitted during the application process itself.

The tuition planning interview which is also described above is used to help create a plausible financial aid scenario for the student, allowing them to get a clear picture of how much financial burden they or their family will have to bear alone and how much will be covered by federal, state, local or institutional aid.

Ohio Valley College of Technology is a participating institution in the Federal Title IV financial assistance programs, and therefore all common federal aid forms are available, such as Federal Pell Grants, Federal Stafford Loans, etc.

The Ohio Valley College of Technology campus is a commuter campus given the absence of any student housing facilities, yet to compensate this fact the school is very flexible and willing to accommodate students’ varying schedules through evening/weekend classes and some online learning opportunities. The school’s student body is overwhelmingly female (at nearly 90%, above the national average for such schools), and 100% of the students are enrolled on a full-time basis. More than 80% of students are in-state (i.e., Ohio residents), with West Virginia and Pennsylvania students accounting for the rest of the student body which doesn’t exceed 140 people in most years.
