Instructions for Reentry into OTA Core Courses
In the event an OTA student who is matriculated into core OTA
(514-XXX) and/or core science (806-XXX) courses has to temporarily
leave the program, the student is considered a “reentry” student.
This may occur because the student:
- Must temporarily take leave from core OTA courses due to
personal or other reasons that do not allow the student to
continue in the program at the current time. This includes
- Failed, and is eligible (see OTA Failure/Course
Repeat/Dismissal Policy) to repeat either a core OTA or science
course that is prerequisite for the following semester.
- Withdrew from a core OTA or science course that is
prerequisite for the following semester.
If you are at this website, it means the Program Director has
determined you are a reentry student.
Reentry students have priority reentry status for one year if
space is available. For
example, if you leave the program during or at the end of the Fall
2015 semester, you will maintain priority reentry until
Fall 2016. Should you decide to postpone your reentry to the OTA program
during the priority year you will forfeit your priority reentry
status and will be eligible for reentry after other students waiting
to reenter have had the opportunity to reenter.
Please carefully review the
Intent to Reenter form, sign and return this form
within one month of your exiting the program to the
Mari Jo Ulrich
2100 Beaser Ave
Ashland WI 54806
If you return your Intent to Reenter form you will receive an
email through your WITC email account giving you further details
regarding course registration for the semester of your reentry. If
you do not return your Intent to Reenter form by the deadline it
will be assumed that you are no longer interested in enrolling in
the WITC OTA program courses and your name will be removed from the
reentry priority list.
Please note that while you may not be eligible to continue with
core OTA courses at this time due to pre/corequisite requirements,
you are still eligible to take general studies or elective courses
required for graduation from the OTA program.
If you are planning on retaking coursework through another
WTCS college, you must still complete and return the Intent to
Reenter form. This will ensure you of reentry priority status for
the one year time limit.
If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to
contact Mari Jo Ulrich, OTA Program Director, at
or 800/243-9482 x 3167.
