About the College

Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College is a member of the American Association of Community Colleges and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award Associate in Arts, Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees, diplomas and certificates. It is a comprehensive two-year technical college that provides training for jobs in new and expanding industries, upgrading programs for workers already employed and university transfer opportunities. 

The goal of the college is to nurture and cultivate the unique qualities of each student through an interesting curriculum, in an inspiring environment and under the leadership of involved instructors. Class size is small, ensuring that each student receives the individualized attention essential for the realization of his or her potential, with the number one priority being the student's success in school and beyond. 

To that end, all courses required for degree, diploma and certificate graduates relate directly to their majors and to competencies needed for professional advancement after graduation. The opportunity for this type of concentration is one of the primary advantages of attending OCtech.
