"I graduated with an Associate of Arts degree with the intention to transfer to a 4 year University to complete my Bachelors. I am so glad I took the route of attending OTC in Springfield. The campus was great and has only improved since I graduated. I loved my small class sizes compared to friends who went directly to a State school. Most of my teachers were extremely helpful. They are more able to care for individual students than if they were teaching 100+ size classes. I felt well prepared when I did transfer to finish my degree. And of course, the cost savings was well worth it!"

"After dealing with the snarkiness of the supposed advisor and the chair of the department. I would not recommend this college to anyone looking for a CIS degree. Not to mention the classes that are unavailable on certain semesters and others need advisor permission. Honestly, this college is a joke. They have GPA's incorrect, they have completion rates screwed up, and it is hilarious that the advisor doesn't know the difference between a Midterm EXAM and a Midterm Cumulative Grade. Honestly, I am going to transfer. I don't care if I have to start over. This place is a damn joke."

"This is the absolute worst waste of time, money and natural resources. Attending this program taught me one thing, skip this waste and go get your BSN like I did. Absolutely the worst, unorganized, petty and crap instructors I have ever come across. When the class would have an average of 62% on a test, I was positively amazed the adjuncts and instructors had the fortitude to continue to blame it on the Class rather than the subpar instruction. Teachers would target a student a pursue them hard in clinical. Witnessed this myself. LPNs nowadays dont make a decent living wage and are confined to practically nursing homes. If you are pursuing a degree in nursing, stay as FAR AWAY from otc that you can get and go get your RN. I just heard that the last graduating class lost 18 students. A few of those out of state or not legal residents of the US are unable to even take their NCLEX.... imagine spending 12 months of your life, thousands of dollars in debt and you cannot even practice your skill and career because the instructors didnt inform you you werent going to be able to even test. Shocking."

"Unorganized, belittling instructors/adjuncts, last minute clinical site scheduling since OTC does not have their own hospital to coordinate clinicals. Instructors hold students to a higher sense of responsibility and standards then they hold themselves. Be prepared to be told on thing and then something completely different to actually occur and the it all being chalked up to teaching you the hectic world of nursing. Skills are taught one way while clinical skills are done however possible. Basically, it's a curriculum of over egos... teachers/adjuncts that runs as effectively as a car without wheels."

"OTC is a great school for undergraduate students to begin at. It is also much cheaper than other colleges for random courses you need for your general education. Really good facilities and I love the industry and tech. There are many vocational programs and certificates to be had. I have not had a teacher that I did not like. It's a great school and a great option for any one in the Ozarks area because there are several campuses. I'm grateful for the experience, I found good guidance. :)"

"OTC is a great community college and wonderful place to begin your post-secondary education. The OTC campus has grown and improved over the years and continues to do so annually. OTC provides a wide variety of opportunity and I highly recommend this college to high school graduates."

"The LPN program was an excellent program. The instructors were dedicated to our success. OTC offers a future for less money without sacrificing quality of education."
