Guided self-placement is an alternative to timed placement tests like the ACT; it may be a more effective mechanism for placement in English, math and reading courses that are applicable to your experiences, interests and goals.
Before registering in classes, view our Guided Self-Placement Resources below. It will be your responsibility to decide which English, math and reading courses are the best fit for you. It is important that you make an informed and wise choice about your placement.
At your STAR (Student Advising and Registration) Seminar you will learn which classes are required for your program of study, how to create an education plan and how to register for classes.
To assist you with your college-major and/or career-choice decisions, we recommend using our free ACE (Academic and Career Exploration) services before attending STAR.
After you register for classes, you must make payment arrangements by the payment deadline.
- Option 1: Pay your tuition in full by using Quikpay to make an immediate payment.
- Option 2: Enroll in a My Payment Plan
- MyPay – Monthly – Pre-authorized payments deducted monthly from your designated bank account or credit card.
- MyPay – Pending Financial Aid – Your ONE payment will be delayed until later in the semester. This is the recommended option for students awarded financial aid including A+, Veteran’s benefits and scholarships. This option is only available once you have submitted your FAFSA and all other required documentation to the Financial Aid office.
Your options are available in MyOTC at the My Payment Plan link on the Access OTC tab or at the Student Finance tab in OTC Central.
*Payment arrangements must be made every semester.
*This will open up the log in page for your MyOTC.
In MyOTC use the My Booklist link to view the textbooks and required supplies for your classes. Use the Reserve Textbook Information link to reserve your textbooks for quick pick up at the OTC Bookstore. (Available during fall and spring semesters only)
Students that set up a My Payment Plan are able to charge their books to their student account.
