Navigating college for your new student can be overwhelming. We are here to help! On this page you can find a list of frequently asked questions. If you can’t find your answer here, you can always email parents@otc.edu.

How do we get started? When is a good time to start?

We recommend students starting in the Fall and Summer start the admissions process in February. Registration for the Fall and Summer occur at the same time, usually in mid-April. Those who are starting in the Spring should start the process in September. Students can complete the FAFSA for the upcoming year starting in October.
