Guided Self-Placement

As of September 2015, OTC no longer requires students to take a placement exam in order to be eligible to take entry level English, Math, and Reading courses. Instead, students are allowed to choose which entry level English, Math or Reading course is right for them.  OTC is committed to providing students with the guidance and information they need to make appropriate self-placement decisions.


As a student, it is important for you to make informed and wise self-placement decisions.  Inappropriate self-placement decisions may affect the time it takes you to complete your certificate or degree, and may impact your ability to receive financial aid.
