Student Savings
 Does OTC require the high school
to use the same book?
 Yes. But we understand book purchasing
cycles and will work with you on off years
to approve current book.
 Are students successful in online classes?
 Overwhelmingly yes. These students are
chosen by GPA and by you as ready to
start college level courses. Over 100 students
participate in online courses every semester
and 99% are successful. Is it hard work?
Yes, but many students are ready for the challenge.
Early Start
Early Start
 Early Start is designed for high school students taking
courses outside of their normal high school load.
 Regular college tuition
 Eligible for up to two courses per semester
Why Early Start vs. Dual Credit?
 SUMMER BREAK! The number one time when
students take Early Start courses is during
summer break. Students can complete a
summer college course at the OTC campuses,
or education centers, or online.
 Students don’t have time in their high school
schedule to add a college course.
 Courses not available at their high school
for dual credit.

participate in online courses
