Important Online Dual Credit Information

  • Before enrolling, students must have easy access to high-speed internet and these computer requirements.
  • If you need assistance with username, password and myOTC student portal, please review Login Help, myOTC TutorialStudent Computer Resources site 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. You are encouraged to navigate these resources before classes begin.
  • After you receive an email confirming your enrollment in class(es), textbook and materials information can be found within the enrolled student’s myOTC account, though the OTC Bookstore, or in the course syllabus. You 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 the OTC calendar and deadlines for 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, including online. If you do not meet these requirements, you will be withdrawn from your class(es).
  • Online classes have at least one proctor requirement. If you attend a high school with a proctor, it’s likely you can complete your proctor requirement at the high school. If not, you must complete the required steps for students.
  • We hope students are successful; However, if a student is considering dropping, please first review the drop deadline, refund schedule, and contact your high school or home school organization to determine how this will impact 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, no matter the student’s age, educational rights are limited solely to the student. Parents have no inherent right to inspect their son’s or daughter’s educational records. Visit this site for more information on FERPA.
