Updating Your Coursework
After your application is verified, you can make updates to courses you listed as in progress or planned, as well as add courses that are planned for the next term.

Timeframe for Updating Coursework
Your application status must be Verified before you can update your coursework. Updates are available within the following timeframe:
- December 13, 2018 and February 15, 2019
When you submit an update, you must move the entire term from in-progress to complete.
Updated coursework will be verified. Arrange for your updated official transcripts to be sent directly to OTCAS as soon as they are available.
