Admissions for New Students

Submit a completed application to the OFTC Admissions Office with your $25.00 non-refundable application fee. Applicants for the Commercial Truck Driving (CTD) Program will also need to complete the CTD Admissions Supplement.

Verification of Lawful Presence in the United States is required for students applying for in-state tuition.

Step Two

Submit an official copy of your high school, GED, and/or ALL college/university transcripts to the Admissions Office. Applicants who have completed a minimum of 30 semester or 45 quarter hours at the degree level may submit official college transcripts in lieu of high school diploma or GED. Official transcripts, in a sealed envelope, must be hand delivered or received by mail before registering for classes.

A high school diploma or GED is required for all associate degree and diploma programs and for most certificate programs. Special Education diplomas or Certificates of Attendance are not recognized for admission purposes.

Step Three

Schedule your ACCUPLACER® placement exam or provide the Office of Admissions with valid SAT or ACT scores that are no more than 5 years (60 months) old. If scores do not meet program level requirements, applicants will be required to take the placement test. Test scores are used to determine program readiness by evaluating reading, writing, and math skills. In lieu of completing the placement test, applicants may also provide an official transcript showing satisfactory completion of appropriate English and math courses with a “C” or better. Students from secondary schools outside the United States must have transcripts translated and evaluated by an approved outside organization.
