“It wasn’t that long ago OCC Admissions reps each visited more than 60 high schools during the academic year, answering student and parent questions and conducting live admissions. COVID-19 has changed that, and we now leverage a variety of social media and technological options to help students navigate financial aid, placement testing, counseling, class registration, stay safe college options and other topics relevant to the OCC admissions process,” said Meller.
