Your Partner in Personal & Professional Success

Adjusting to college life takes a family who cares. At Ohio Technical College, we care!

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.
