Important Online Dual Credit Information

  • Before enrolling, students must have easy access to high-speed internet and these computer requirements.
  • For assistance with username, password and myOTC student portal, please review Login Help, myOTC TutorialStudent Computer Resources sites, or the enrolled student can contact the Helpdesk at 417-447-7548.
  • Students are required to utilize their myOTC email frequently, in order to complete the admission steps, communicate with instructors, access payment reminders, etc.
  • Beginning fall 2017, online courses will be delivered through the Canvas Learning Management System. OTC encourages students to navigate these resources before classes begin.
  • After confirmation of enrollment in class(es) via email, textbook and materials information can be found within the enrolled student’s myOTC account, though the OTC Bookstore, or in the course syllabus. Students can visit the Bookstore page before enrollment to explore prices.
  • On the first day of classes each semester, class content will appear in student’s myOTC accounts and within the Canvas tab. Class content may not appear before then.
  • Students enrolled in dual credit follow OTC’s calendar and the deadlines within each course, regardless of high school calendars and cancellations. Students should plan ahead and complete assignments before deadlines; instructors will not be lenient about missing deadlines, no matter the reason provided.
  • OTC has an attendance and participation policy requirement for all classes. Students who do not meet the requirements listed, are withdrawn from class(es).
  • Online classes have at least one proctor requirement. For students that attend a high school, it is likely students can complete the proctor requirement(s) at the high school. If not, students have other options to complete the proctor requirement(s).
  • We hope students are successful. However, if a student is considering dropping a course, please first review the drop deadline and refund schedule for 16 week courses, before  contacting the high school or home school organization to determine how disenrollment impacts high school credits and graduation. If a student decides to drop, complete fillable registration form provided in section four with “drop” in the first column and only include the class(es) to drop. Then, either scan or take a clear picture and email the form to dualcredit@otc.edu.
  • In college, FERPA limits educational rights solely to the student no matter the student’s age. Parents have no inherent right to inspect their child’s educational records.
