Speak with Your High School Counselor

Discuss OTC Dual Credit and class options with your high school counselor. If you have already spoken with your counselor and your high school offers dual credit classes, please move on to Step 2.

Homeschool and private school students can participate in online classes through OTC Dual Credit. Proceed 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 and math classes are the best fit for you. It is important that you make an informed and wise choice about your placement.
