Financial Assistance

Students needing help paying for their OTA education may apply for federal financial aid using our four-step process. Students may be eligible for the federal Pell Grant and federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loans. Parents of dependent students may be eligible to apply for a Parent PLUS loan.

Payment Options

Our Student Accounts office offers several OTA tuition payment options, from paying online via KatePay to paying in person by check. Typically, payment for each semester is due in full by the first day of class. However, you can enroll in a payment plan that spreads your costs across the semester. At the start of each semester, we offer a ten-day window where you can sign up for a payment plan in KatePay.
