OTC Commencement will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2022 @ 5PM, at the JQH Arena on the Missouri State University campus. Ozarks Technical Community College will follow all local public health guidance to ensure the health and safety of our community when planning the celebration for the Class of 2022. Continue to visit this website for the latest information about OTC’s commencement ceremonies. As information becomes available it will be posted there.

Upon picking up your items, please remove gown from the package and place on a hanger to allow wrinkles and folds to fall out prior to graduation. Should you want to iron your gown, turn inside out and press with a cool iron.
