4. Registering For Classes

After you have been admitted, taken the placement tests (COMPASS) or provided ACT scores and seen a counselor, you will want to know how to register for classes. 

A. How to Register for Classes

There are three ways to register for classes at OCC:

  1. Web Registration: You will need a student login, which you will receive after you have been admitted.

    Follow these steps:

    • STEP 1:    From the OCC Home Page, click the Online Services link in the green navigation bar at the TOP of the page.
    • STEP 2:    Login (NOTE: You will get a login when you are admitted to OCC.)
    • STEP 3:    Click on Students tab.
    • STEP 4:    Choose the option Register for class sections.
    • STEP 5:    Click on the first link: Search and Register for Sections.
    • STEP 6:    Enter the term and one other option in the search boxes.
    • STEP 7:    Click Submit button.
    • STEP 8:    Enter a checkmark in the box(es) next to the section in which you would like to register.
    • STEP 9:    Select an action for the course from the drop-down list: Register, Audit, Remove From List.
    • STEP 10:  Click Submit button.

  2. In-Person Registration: In-person registration is only held during the last few business days before a semester begins (during the "final registration" period) at Enrollment Services offices on each campus. (Note: Class availability may be limited at this late date.)
