OTC takes pride in having a diverse student body, and an important part of our community is our students from other countries. The college strives to do all it can to support our international students and make sure OTC feels like your home away from home. If you’re thinking about studying internationally, there are many factors to consider such as your legal status, housing plans and packing appropriate clothes for a different climate.

The International Student Services office is here to help you navigate these obstacles and ensure your transition to Springfield is as easy as possible. Whether you’re just beginning to research schools in the U.S., applying for admission or are a current international student, we have the information you need.
