We require our OTA students to be covered under a health insurance plan. Students who do not have health insurance coverage can enroll in the plan that is available through our university.
Students who need 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.

Our Student Accounts office offers several 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 have the opportunity to enroll in a payment plan that spreads your costs across the semester. We offer a ten day window at the start of each semester where you can sign-up for a payment plan in KatePay.
If you have a question about the tuition and fees for our Online OTA program, please contact an admissions counselor.
