Admissions Counselors

Your Admissions Counselor is your go-to person for enrolling at OTC. They will help you select the right program for your goals, financial aid, orientation to college, and registration for your first semester of classes at OTC. Find your Admissions Counselor below. Admissions Counselors are assigned based on the OTC location you plan to attend, and for our Springfield and online students, by the first letter of your last name.
