No Hold Enrollment

No Hold Enrollment

Oklahoma City Community College knows you're working hard to finish your degree – don't let a balance on your student account stop you from enrolling now for the Summer or Fall 2017 semesters. Many OCCC students face challenges paying for their education. OCCC is here to help you meet your educational goals and to encourage your financial wellness. That's why we are offering an opportunity for students to enroll for the Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 semesters, even if you owe a balance on your student account (less than $1,500).

Finishing matters! We hope this will give you more time to focus on studying for finals this semester and to plan your repayment strategy for completing your degree or certificate program on time.

Frequently Asked Questions for Summer 2017/Fall 2017 No Hold Enrollment Opportunity

Q. This sounds awesome. How do I get started?

A. Contact the Bursar’s Office to determine if your total student balance is less than $1,500. Once you have spoken with the Bursar’s Office, you must come in-person to see an advisor in Academic Advising to enroll. The hold on your student account will not be removed, thus you will not be able to enroll online.

 

Q. Can I take advantage of this opportunity if I am not a current student?  

A. Yes. If you have not enrolled in classes within the past 12 months, you will need to re-apply online or in the office of Recruitment & Admissions in order to be re-admitted to the college before proceeding to the Bursar office and Advising for enrollment.

 

Q. Is this offer applicable for cumulative balances with OCCC, or just for my Spring 2017 accrued balance?
