Important Note

Your online session will time-out after 60 minutes of inactivity, therefore we recommend that responses be written in MS Word, then copied and pasted into the correct field. Save each page of your application. You can always return to your application to complete any unfinished tasks. Instructors be sure to have electronic copies of your résumé and nominating administrators have your technology plan, so it can be uploaded with your application.

Your OTAC application account is designed to match you (teacher/applicant) with your nominating administrator and vice-versa. It is important that whoever starts the OTAC application process share with the other their OTAC application account information. The application database will join the applicant and administrator sections together. You may return to your application at any time to make changes or revisions until the application has been submitted or prior to the June deadline date. Both applicant and administrator must create an OTAC account.
