OCSCs can request account information to view students from their campus who have applied to BestSemesterTM programs. With this account, OCSCs can see application status as well as the materials students still need to submit for their application. To request an account, please email info@bestsemester.com.

Please Note: With an account, OCSCs can set up weekly email reminders to view students and their application progress. The email will be from info@bestsemester.com and sent from Terra Dotta (our application system provider). The email is brief (just student's name and semester); however, OCSCs can log into their account and view the details of students' progress.
