Michigan Colleges Online (MCO)

OCC offers courses online, however, if there is a course that is not currently available at OCC, you have the option of taking the online course offered at another Michigan community college. 

You will register for the online course on the Michigan Colleges Online site. While you complete the course offered by the "Provider" college, you will maintain your status at OCC and continue to receive OCC support services. All credits earned at "Provider Colleges" transfer back to OCC.
