Welcome to Graduation.

In an effort to keep the OTC community safe and do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, Commencement and Grad Prep have been postponed indefinitely.

We understand that commencement is an important part of the OTC experience and we want to honor our students while still keeping our community safe. Graduates will receive additional communications about alternative commencement plans in the coming weeks, and updates will be posted here as they are available.

Graduation Checklist

You must apply to graduate, even if you do not intend to walk in the graduation ceremony, in order to receive your diploma or transfer to another institution.

Before you complete the application for graduation, you should review your degree audit in the student planning tab on myOTC.  Double-check that the correct program of study is listed and that you have either completed or are in progress in all courses required to complete your program. If you have questions about your degree audit please contact your assigned advisor.

It’s easy to apply for graduation online in myOTC.  You can also download the Printable Application for Graduation, scan it or take a picture of it with your phone, and then email it to registrar@otc.edu. We are currently not able to accept them in person.

Some programs of study may require an exit assessment. Click here for more information.

The USDE requires all students graduating from OTC who have borrowed from the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL) or Direct Loan Program to complete student loan exit counseling. Click here for more information.

As a graduate of OTC, you are automatically a member of the OTC Alumni Association. You are very important to us. We hope you want to stay connected with OTC and all of the exciting events and resources the college has to offer you. Check your email after graduation for the monthly OTC Alumni Newsletter. Your MyOTC account will remain active.

Social Media

Help us celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates by sharing your experience on social media in the following ways:

  • If you are graduating or attending graduation to celebrate with someone, we encourage you to join the online conversation before and during commencement by sharing your social media posts using the official hashtags: #OTCgrad and #myOTC.
  • Whenever possible, tag OTC in your posts.
  • Add “ozarkstech” on Snapchat, and be sure to use our special graduation filter at JQH Arena.
