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  and bring it to the Student Services office at any OTC location.

Applications are due:

  • April 1 (to graduate after the spring semester)
  • July 1 (to graduate after the summer semester)
  • November 1 (to graduate after the fall semester)

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.
