Midterm and final grades along with additional important student information can be found at MyOTC. Grades will not be mailed, however students needing a hard copy of the grades can request a transcript in Student Services.

Grading System

Official grades are issued for each student at the end of each semester. Students enrolled in credit courses will be graded by the letter grade system and assigned a grade point average (GPA) for each semester. The GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points by the number of credit hours attempted. To calculate your GPA, use the GPA calculator. A GPA of 2.0 is required for graduation. Developmental courses and transfer credits are not included in the GPA computation.
