The Associate of Individualized Technical Studies (AITS) degree is open to any student whose educational goals cannot be accomplished through enrollment in one of OTC's existing degree programs. The student may design a degree which combines two or more discipline areas into a unique education plan. Faculty members within the disciplines will assist the student in planning the most appropriate course of study for the individual.

Note: This program requires an approved AITS application. Please contact the Office of the Provost at academics@otc.edu to complete the process. When applying for admission, select the Associate of Arts (AA) degree. Upon your AITS application being approved, you will be moved into this program of study.
