OTC will award credit for courses successfully completed through another college or university accredited by a regional accrediting association recognized by the United States Department of Education.  A list of those agencies is available on the Council for Higher Education Accreditation website.

To be accepted, coursework must have been completed at the institution after it received accreditation or during the time it was granted candidacy status for accreditation from one of the above accrediting associations.

Official transcripts from all regionally accredited colleges/universities attended must be submitted to Ozarks Technical Community College for credit evaluation. Advanced Placement and CLEP Test transcripts may also be submitted for evaluation.

  • Fifteen of the last thirty credit hours that fulfill general education or major requirements as listed by the student’s selected Associate Degree program must be completed at OTC.
  • Certificate programs will require the number of credit hours in residence proportional to the associate degree.
