Guest Students

Attend OCC as a Guest Student and cut the cost, not your education! 

Taking summer classes is a popular option for students who are home for the summer. Completing summer courses can possibly allow you to graduate one to two semesters earlier. Some students even attend during fall and winter to supplement their course load. Our online options make this even easier.

Before you register:

  • Confirm your OCC class selections count toward your degree with your home institution’s advising staff.
  • Confirm that there are not prerequisite courses that will prevent you from registering for your OCC class selections.
