How to check latest change time of each file using glob in python?

I have a python script that does certain operations on files. For a function, I need to check the last changing time of a file. I was suggested to use glob to do this but I am not able to figure out how to implement it. Please help

You can get the changing time from the getctime property

import glob
import os 
list_of_files = glob.glob('/path/to/folder/*') # * means all if need specific format then *.csv
last_change_time = os.path.getctime
