Ozarks Technical Community College

Ozarks Technical Community College (est. 1990) launched when residents of Springfield and its surrounding public school districts voted to establish a “community technical college” to serve the education and training needs of southwest Missouri. Over the past 30+ years, OTC has served over 240,000 students and graduated over 33,000. OTC implements continued innovations to meet its core values of quality, community, opportunity, innovation, accessibility, integrity, and personal growth. OTC upholds its mission to promote student learning though affordable workforce training as well as technical and general education which responds to the needs of the community and its diverse constituents.
