Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College is one of the most well-respected and well-regarded higher education institutions in South Carolina. Our graduates, across all programs, are sought after by many employers; pass rates on nursing and health sciences program licensure exams are above state and national averages; and our students have opportunities to transfer seamlessly to many colleges and universities in South Carolina. We are a student-centered institution and work to provide flexible options to meet the needs of all students. Whether you are a working adult attempting to advance in your career, a traditional college student looking for a quality higher education experience, a high school student starting college early or a member of the community hoping to learn something new, OCtech is a good fit for you. I invite you to further explore our website to gain a greater understanding of the depth and breadth of programming we offer on campus.  

Our most valuable resource, the faculty and staff, are a committed group of professionals dedicated to the success of our students. We all work tirelessly in support of achieving our mission, “to provide relevant training and education in a flexible environment that promotes success and self-reliance for students, and fosters economic development for the region.” As a result, we serve a dual purpose - to prepare students for successful careers and to provide a quality workforce to employers in our region.  

The future holds exciting possibilities for this region of the state and the college. Stay connected with OCtech by joining our Facebook and YouTube pages and following my Twitter account (@tobinwa) for the latest campus news and events. Be sure to take advantage of all that OCtech has to offer.
