There are numerous benefits to creating an account with the OTM System. Just a few include:
- Having the ability to edit OTMs before they are due
- The system will partially fill out the OTM form for you
- Keep track of previously submitted OTMs
- See when OTMs are due to your campus or regional level
OTMs submitted without first loggin into an account can not be edited by a user. The only way for a user to edit an OTM after it has been submitted
is by first logging into the system to submit the OTM.
To create an account, direct your browser to the Create an Account Page.
Select the University that you currently attend and hit submit. Then, fill out the next form. When completed and after submitted, you will
see a page saying that it will take approximately 24 hours for your account to be activated. Every account submitted is automatically set to be
inactive and an administrator will have to activate and validate your account request. If you campus administrator has specified to send users
an e-mail when their account is granted or denied, you will receive notification when it has been done.
The dates that OTMs can be searched for are at the discretion of your regional administrator. After logging into the system, check the dates to know
when OTMs can be searched. If you received confirmation that your OTM was submitted, then you can be rest assured that it has. Just because you can not search
for it doesn't mean that your campus and/or region will not be able to see it.
Only OTMs that have been submitted for the current month can be edited by a user. Previous month submissions can not be edited.
When an account is inactive, you will not be able to log in and therefore will not be able to submit OTMs under that account. If you are in
need of submitting an OTM, you may submit one without logging into an account.
