2018 Fall Schedule

A Message from the President

Picture of campus

Welcome both new and returning students to the Fall 2018 semester at OCCC. Your choice to attend OCCC is a wise one.

Earning a college degree is one of the most powerful and life-changing decisions you will ever make. A college degree has never been as important for your financial security as it is today. The average income of a college graduate is now projected to be 84% higher than those without a college degree. Good jobs that require only a high school diploma are dwindling, while job opportunities that require a degree continue to increase.

While future jobs and potential income are very important, there are other less-tangible benefits. College is also about stimulating your mind, expanding your capacity to intelligently participate in our democracy, and learning more about yourself and the world. Simply put—college is the surest path I know to make you more successful in life.

Whether you are here to eventually transfer to another college, get the education to begin a new career, or just to learn something new, the faculty and staff at OCCC are dedicated to provide you with the support and education necessary to see your dream of a college education come true.

On behalf of everyone here—welcome, and have a great semester at OCCC.
