Our accredited associate degree programs set high standards for academic performance, allowing graduates to transfer to colleges of their choice - and succeed. Our curriculum enables students to develop and practice academic skills and strategies in a way that builds from semester to semester. We believe in setting high expectations and academic standards while operating at the level where each student is prepared to learn and succeed.
Students who graduate from OT Academy earn an Associate of Arts and Science (AAS) degree. Students can choose from degree tracks in Instructional Design Technology, Web Design Technology, Digital Media Technology, and Business Development Technology. We are also planning to offer a Bachelor of Arts and Science (BAS) degree in New Media Technology.
Personal Transformation Leadership Program (required for every degree track)
The Personal Transformation Leadership (PTL) curriculum introduces the super conscious model for living. It is an action-based model where individuals learn to awaken their inner potential, connect with their higher innate conscious to apply inner wisdom to live a powerful and productive life. The program uses a blended learning approach where students will receive individualized instruction through combined interactive eLearning paired with virtual coaching.
Students will work on individual projects. Individual projects will include creative writing, public speaking, and other opportunities to communicate and give presentations. Students are also required to publish community blogs, book reviews, personal life stories, and other types of literary works to connect, share, contribute, and interact with others in the learning community. Individual and team projects will allow students to produce programs for radio and television.

At present, OT Academy is not an accredited institution. We are a new institution of higher learning. New colleges and universities must show at least two (2) years of operation to obtain accreditation.
The Academy is in the process of applying for accreditation from an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. At this time, no assurances can be given as to when, or if, accreditation might be granted. However, as students apply and enroll to the Academy this will support us in our efforts to secure accreditation.
Please Note: Unless and until OT Academy attains accreditation, other academic institutions may refuse to accept OT Academy academic credits on a transfer basis. Whether or not OT Academy credits are accepted for transfer is solely up to the discretion of the receiving institution.
