Licensure or Certification Credit

Licensure or Certification Credit

Save Time and Money

If you have valid industry certifications or licenses and you've been admitted to OCC, you may be eligible to receive credit for an OCC course or series of courses and fast track the completion of your degree or certificate. Not yet an OCC student? Apply today.

Here’s How the Program Works

  1. Review the list of courses that accept licenses or certification equivalencies
  2. Complete the form. Please have your license or certification handy.
  3. Email  a copy of the license or certification for validation by the Registrar’s Office.
  4. Once the license or certificate is validated, credit for the applicable course will be added to your academic record as “pass” credit at no cost to you. No grade will be entered and the credit will not count toward your GPA. These course may satisfy pre-requisite requirements. 
  5. You may now enroll in additional eligible courses.
