Speak with Your High School Counselor

Ask your high school counselor about eligibility for dual credit at OTC and about the online and seated class options with your school.

If you are a homeschool or private school student, you are eligible for online dual credit classes. A list of online dual credit courses can be found at this link.

If you have already spoken with your counselor and your high school offers dual credit classes, please move on to Step 2.

Apply for Admission

Fill out the free OTC application online.

If you applied within the last year, or participated in an OTC class within the last year, skip this step.

Note: The application does not register you for classes. 

Guided Self-Placement

Guided self-placement is an alternative to timed placement tests like the ACT. Review the Self-Placement Guidelines to determine which English, math and science classes are the best fit for you. It is important that you make an informed and wise choice about your placement.

Submit Completed Dual Credit Registration Form

The Dual Credit Registration Form is fillable. Please type information within the form, before you print for signatures.  For discounted dual credit tuition please use the list of online class options and/or the high school seated class code to complete the form.

Return completed forms to your high school counselor, or email forms to dualcredit@otc.edu.
