Admission Policy

Admission to Ozarks Technical Community College is open to all individuals who can benefit from its educational programs. A focus of the college mission is on the academic, career and personal goals of the student.

Students should not regard enrollment out of reach because of financial need. The college commits itself to assisting students with college expenses to the fullest extent consistent with Federal, State and college financial assistance regulations.

OTC may admit you as a First-Time student if you have completed high school, GED or HiSET requirements or as a Transfer student coming from another institution finishing up a certificate or degree. Or, you may be coming back to finish up your earlier work or starting something new. There are a lot of avenues available to you to come to OTC!
