A Special Message from the President...

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students; I would like to welcome you to Oklahoma City Community College. OCCC has been recognized as one of Oklahoma’s finest colleges and one of the highest number of degrees awarded by a community college nationwide. I hope you choose to make OCCC your home, and take advantage of all OCCC has to offer you as a student. Our innovative programs, dedicated faculty and staff, and affordable tuition make OCCC a great option when choosing a college.

Enrolling in classes is the first step in accomplishing whatever your higher education goals may be. Whether you choose to complete a degree or certificate and go on to a four-year college or university, or use your instruction to enter a new career field, or advance in your current career, I know you will find the support you need at OCCC.

The next steps require a high level of commitment and discipline. To be successful in college, keep up with all of the assignments outside of class, and balance the needs of family and work – but the long-term benefits make it all worth it. College graduates enjoy, on average, more opportunities for better paying jobs, more rewarding work, and a higher quality of life. I am excited that you are considering OCCC as your college home, and I will see you on campus soon.
