Due to COVID-19, we are offering two different options for incoming students to complete their academic advising and registration. Students are encouraged to select the option they are most comfortable completing. Incoming students do not need to complete both options.
OPTION #1: On-Campus Orientation:
This is our traditional, in-person orientation and advising program. Students will complete orientation in small groups with support from our trained professional staff Academic Advisors and Enrollment Navigators. Our Advisors and Navigators will walk each group through all the steps in the enrollment process for the upcoming term.
Currently, all scheduling is being done by phone. To schedule an in-person orientation session, please contact the appropriate location:
Springfield (Technical Education): 417-447-4794
Richwood Valley Campus: 417-447-7727
Table Rock Campus: 417-447-8921
Lebanon Center: 417-532-5044
Waynesville Center: 573-774-5061
Republic Center: 417-447-7800
OPTION #2: Distance Advising:
Distance Advising is the online alternative to the in-person orientation session. Distance Advising is delivered through OTC’s online learning system called Canvas, is self-paced, and requires students to work through seven steps and have their course plans reviewed by an Academic Advisor before being released to register for their first semester at OTC. Distance advising is designed for students who live out of state and are attending online or cannot attend our in-person orientation due to distance or other reasons.
