Why OTC?

Why OTC?

You're here, you're interested, and now you want to know why you should choose Ozarks Technical Community College to continue your education. Since OTC began, we've strived to provide students with a convenient, affordable option to continue their educational growth. Here are some of the top reasons to choose OTC:

  • Technology in the classroom. Many of our classrooms are equipped with computers that help provide hands-on training and get students more familiar and more comfortable with technology.
  • Small class sizes. With smaller class sizes, our students are able to get the one-on-one attention they need.
  • Focus on teaching. Because we aren't a research-based school, our instructors can and do focus on teaching. This focus makes it easy for us to ensure our students receive the high-quality of education they deserve.
  • Affordability. We understand the need to keep education affordable, which is why we have some of the lowest costs around. Affordability isn't just about cost, though. Through our MyPay MyWay program, we're able to offer students payment plans that make budgeting for college easier. For more information about costs, see tuition and fees.
  • Degrees, certificates and more. OTC offers Associate of Arts (AA) degrees and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees in a variety of areas. For those not seeking a degree, we also offer a range of certificates and continuing education courses. Students may also transfer their education gained here to four-year university or college, offering an affordable solution to education costs. For more information about transferring, see the 43-Hour Transfer Block page.
  • Healthcare classes. Through our Allied Health program, we provide courses in a range of healthcare fields, including Dental Assistant, EMT, Medical Laboratory Technician and more. OTC also offers an Associate of Science in Nursing.
  • Tutoring Center, Speech Center, and Writing Center. Each center specializes in offering students the resources and extra help they need to be successful in their educational career.
  • Convenience. OTC offers day, evening, weekend, and online classes, so you can easily find a schedule that works around your life, career, and family.
  • Studet Involvement. For students that want to get involved, they can join the Student Government Association.
