OTC’s 2020 graduation was canceled due to the coronavirus, but you’re an OTC Eagle and we want to give you the celebration you deserve. Graduates who were eligible to walk in the 2020 commencement ceremony, are invited to participate in 2021.

Since OTC will follow all health department guidelines, graduates will be socially distanced during the ceremony. Therefore, all 2020 graduates who intend to participate in the 2021 commencement ceremony must RSVP using the form below. By telling the college that you intend to take part in graduation, it ensures that we can accommodate all students who would like to attend.

If you graduated from OTC in summer 2019, fall 2019 or spring 2020, and would have attended the spring 2020 commencement ceremony, you are welcome to attend in 2021. The commencement ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 19 at JQH Arena on the Missouri State University campus.

Note that there are two ceremonies in 2021 — 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. All degree and certificate programs are assigned to a designated ceremony, and graduates will walk in the ceremony assigned to their program of study. For example, students who earned an Associate of Arts in General Studies will take part in the 3 p.m. event. Nursing graduates are assigned to the 6:30 p.m. ceremony. Before you RSVP, please note your degree or certificate program and then see what time your ceremony is scheduled.

It may be a year late, but we can’t wait to celebrate your accomplishment.
