How to Register for Classes at OFTC

New and Returning students are required to meet with their advisor to select their courses prior to registration. Advisor names and contact information are listed on each program of study page.

Registration Procedure

Please see the OFTC Calendar for important dates!

  1. Once you are accepted and receive your acceptance letter, you are eligible to register for classes.
    • New/Transfer students should attend new student registration and meet with an advisor. Advisor names and contact information are listed on each program of study page.
    • Returning students may make an appointment during advanced registration to meet with your advisor. You and your advisor will determine a class schedule.
  2. Your advisor will provide you with an Alternate Pin Number (this number changes each semester).
    • New/Transfer students will register on Banner Web (New/Transfer Log In) using your User ID and PIN. If this is your first entry into Banner Web, your User ID is your social security number or student ID. Your PIN is your six digit birthday (MMDDYY).
    • Returning students will register on Banner Web (Returning Log In) using Single Sign On. You will use the first portion of your OFTC email address and the password for your OFTC email account.
  3. See the Financial Aid Office in Student Affairs to ensure that all documentation is completed. Completing all financial aid steps is vital! Make sure that you open and read all mail and check your student email from the college.
  4. See the Business Office to pay any outstanding fees. (Tuition and fees not authorized by financial aid or paid to the business office prior to the beginning of the term will result in removal from your classes.)
  5. View the New Student Orientation online.
  6. Obtain an official copy of your schedule. All outstanding tuition and fees must be paid before receiving an official copy.
  7. Have your Student ID made.
  8. Go to the bookstore to purchase books. You may use your financial aid to purchase books. Please make sure you understand the bookstore procedures. Some classes have open resources and do not require books; some classes require online books or access codes, and other classes use traditional books. A text book list is available online each term. If you have any questions, please talk to the bookstore staff.
  9. Finally, go to class! Your success in your classes is highly dependent upon your active engagement with the material presented therein. Regular and punctual attendance is an important part of preparing a student for employment and is often a critical factor when employers review a student’s record.
