OAKLAND COUNTY, Michigan – The store displays and shelves tell us school is just around the corner and summer sales remind us the rush is on to nab these last “lazy days” of the season.

For many, classes start early – before the traditional day after Labor Day – including at Oakland Community College.

Fall semester at OCC starts Monday, August 27. Registration for the start of OCC fall classes closes August 24. New students must apply by August 15.

Did you know, for the equivalent of as little as $25 week, students can earn 3 credits toward accredited degree, transfer and certificate programs at OCC? OCC maintains a low tuition rate for high-quality education – up to 25- to 50-percent lower cost to similar public or private higher education institutions. The college offers courses in nearly 100 degree and certificate programs.

Many students choose OCC as their college starting point and save thousands of dollars at other schools by transferring course credits. Others choose OCC to increase their skills and career potential or renew a personal commitment and desire to learn from excellent instructors in the classroom and learning labs.

For high school students looking to get a jump-start on college, OCC has a number of options to earn early college credits and save money. Opportunities vary by individual student and high school district and range from dual enrollment to early college.
