Change of Class Schedule
Students are expected to complete a class schedule during registration and maintain
that schedule for the entire semester. If, for any reason, students wish to change
any of their courses, they may use MyOCC/Online Services to adjust their schedule.
Students are responsible for registration deadlines and refund deadlines. Until a
desired schedule adjustment is complete, students should attend all classes on their
Auditing a Course
Students wishing to audit a course or remove an audit status must indicate their desire
when registering. Changes to or from audit status are permitted through the last day
of the Drop/Add Period as defined in the Academic Calendar. In the case of late-start
section, students may audit a course or remove audit status up to the day the section
begins. Audit students must meet appropriate course prerequisites. Full tuition and
fees will apply.
The status of audit means the student will not earn credit to satisfy course, program
or degree requirements. Audited courses do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable,
nor will they be used in determining academic load for financial aid, veteran’s certification
or athletic eligibility.
The mark of AU will appear on the transcript for courses that were audited. A student
auditing a class is expected to participate as a regularly-enrolled student unless
prior arrangements have been made with the instructor.
Dropping a Course
Students may drop a class or cancel enrollment by web during registration periods.
Student-initiated drops may be transacted on the Web or in person at any campus once
classes begin. Student drops transacted after the refund period will appear as a “W”
mark on the transcript. Student-initiated drops will not be permitted beyond the instructional
week indicated in the following table:
|Length of Course
||Last Week to Drop
Sections less than four weeks in length may be dropped no later than the end of the
business day following the first class meeting.
A student who wishes to enroll in a course that has been attempted three or more times
must request approval of an academic counselor. A course may be repeated. However,
the listing of the original grade remains part of the permanent record. The best grade
and credits are used to compute the grade point average.
A student need not repeat a course in which an “F” was earned unless it is a prerequisite
to another course or it is a course required for graduation. Certain courses have
been designated as "equate" courses. Taking both a course and its equivalent has the
same effect as repeating that course.
Oakland Community College offers college courses that fulfill requirements in the
first two years of a bachelor degree. The courses are articulated with degree programs
at other colleges and universities throughout the state. Transfer guides are available
at campus counseling centers and on the web in the Michigan Transfer Network.
