the road to your bachelor’s degree, isn’t it nice to know that you can
get there from here?
by Dave Adams
It's easy to see yourself in cap and gown, waving a diploma over your
head while the orchestra plays and family members yell out your name
from the 15th row of the Palace. What's harder to visualize is all of
the steps you have to
take before you can arrive at that magical moment when you can add BA,
BS or BBA to your resume.
Consider the information on these two pages as your
first step toward answering all of those nagging questions, from "What
classes do I need?" and "Will they all transfer?" to "How much is this
going to cost?" In the process remember: No matter how far away a
four-year degree seems, at OCC "you can get anywhere from here."
Charting your course Here are four things you can do right away to start
planning your successful
transfer from Oakland Community College to the four-year college or
university of your choice.
1. Make a call A phone call to the number listed at the bottom of this
page gets you started.
A helpful admissions representative can answer basic questions, arrange
to have a packet of information mailed to you, and help you schedule an
appointment with an OCC educational counselor.
2. Apply for admission
The admissions representative can mail you an application, or you can
stop by the admissions office at any of our convenient campus locations
and pick one up. Better yet, if you have access to the internet, an
application can be requested from the college Web site at
www.oaklandcc.edu then click on College
Information. At OCC there is no fee to file an application.
3. Search the transfer files
Early on in your academic career you need to decide which college you
want to transfer to. At any of our campuses you can meet with a
well-qualified counselor and identify the specific courses that you need
to take to make your transfer to the university of your choice as easy
4. Bring your questions
When you come to your counseling appointment, come armed with
information and ideas about what it is you want to accomplish and
questions about your options for getting there.
