Important Information for High School Counselors and A+ Coordinators
Dear High School Counselors and A+ Coordinators,
Please note the following changes coming to the student registration process that starts on November 14, 2018.
Beginning with registration for the spring 2019 semester, students must sign up for My Payment Plan on the same day that they register for classes or they will be dis-enrolled from their classes at midnight. A student’s registration is not complete until the student signs up for My Payment Plan the same day the student enrolls in classes.
When students register for their spring classes, they MUST sign up for My Payment Plan on the same day they register to hold their spot in those classes. If they do not sign up for My Payment Plan the same day they register, they will be dis-enrolled from those classes at midnight.
Beginning spring 2019, My Payment Plan will offer three monthly payments for the semester scheduled on February 5th, March 5th and April 5th. Signing up for My Payment Plan the same day that they register is necessary to ensure that their registration is complete.
Anticipated aid will now be factored into the student’s account balance viewable in myOTC.

(Registration charges) – (Anticipated financial aid) = (Balance used to calculate monthly payments)

When they begin the process to register for classes, they will need to follow these three steps:
