The following steps will guide you through the process of becoming a student at OCC.
If your student account has been inactive for more than three years, you will need to reapply. This new application will be used to update your existing account.
NOTE: If you have registered for classes in the past three years, you DO NOT need to reapply.
After you receive confirmation that your application has been processed, you will need to log into your MyOCC Account. Once logged in to MyOCC, select the College Resources link and then choose the Student Email link to ACTIVATE your required OCC EMAIL account. Check your email often for important news and updates.
STEP 4: MANDATORY ENGLISH/MATH PLACEMENT
Returning students will likely have an existing English placement on file or qualify for one of the exemptions.
Returning students that have passed a math class at OCC with at least a “C” or qualify for one of the other exemptions - DO NOT have to take OCC’s math placement test.
NOTE: DO NOT take OCC’s math placement test unless you plan on registering for a math class within a year of testing as the results expire.
An OCC counselor can answer your questions regarding your student record and placement testing or exemptions.
STEP 5: MEET WITH A COUNSELOR
Make the most of your counseling appointment! Complete Steps 1-4 BEFORE you meet with a counselor.
Use the numbers at the bottom of the Counseling homepage to schedule a Zoom or phone appointment at the closest campus. It is important that you meet with an OCC counselor to review your educational plans and make certain you are on the right path!
STEP 6: REGISTER FOR CLASSES VIA MyOCC
Log into MyOCC and select the College Resources link. Choose the Student Planning link. Click on the Plan your Degree & Register for Classes option to search and register for classes.
STEP 8: GET YOUR RAIDER ONE CARD
Returning students that DO NOT have a Raider One Card need to request a new or replacement card because it’s not only your official OCC student ID, it also serves as your Library and copy/print card. Your first card is free. Replacement cards cost $10.
STEP 9: BUY YOUR BOOKS
You can order and have your books delivered from the Raider’s Store by clicking on BUY YOUR BOOKS above, selecting Buy Textbooks and following the directions. The Raider Bookstore provides competitive comparisons to get your books!
