Your Partner in Personal & Professional Success

Adjusting to college life takes a family who cares. At OTC and PSI, we care!

Our Student Support Services are divided into two divisions for your convenience.

Student Services

Our Student Services department is available to all future and currently enrolled students. From counseling on housing, academics and financial aid to personal matters and more, students are provided with a family who cares about them and their success.

At Ohio Technical College and the PowerSport Institute, you are not a number. You become part of our family, and we will do all we can to ensure your success.

The Student Services department provides a monthly newsletter to students updating them on current events, works hand-in-hand with the Student Activity Council to organize student activities, helps with securing discount tickets to local events, and provides a wealth of information on Cleveland.

Student Services also acts as a conduit for parents to find out how their students are doing and provides medical and emergency information to staff when needed. We look out for our students and provide them with the skills needed to become successful in life as well as in their careers.

Student Disability Services

Mission of Student Services
Student Services is committed to removing barriers for students with disabilities at Ohio Technical College by ensuring appropriate accommodations. Student Services works directly with students, instructors, administrators, and staff to provide accommodations for students with disabilities. Student Services promotes equal access for students with disabilities and strives for full inclusion.
To ensure the quality of education, Ohio Technical College seeks to provide an environment conducive to learning, teaching, training, working, and conducting research that values the diversity of its community. OTC strives to be supportive of the academic, personal and work-related needs of each individual student and is committed to facilitating the full participation of students with a disability.
Student Services works to provide resources, support, and accommodations for all students with disabilities and works to remove physical and attitudinal barriers, which may prevent a student’s full participation at Ohio Technical College.

OTC does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs or activities in accordance with the regulations implementing Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. §794.  Mr. Bruce Shields, Dean of Students, coordinates the College’s responsibilities under Section 504, and can be contacted at  bshields@ohiotech.edu or 216-881-1700 ext. 101.
