At Ocean County College we offer a variety of degree and certificate programs. View our online catalog for specific degree and certificate program details.

Our certificates of completion are shorter programs offered primarily for practitioners who wish to upgrade knowledge in a particular career field, though courses are usually open to all interested students. In general, the credits you earn through a certificate program may later be applied to an associate degree in a related career field or in general education.


Typically, the associate degree (64 or more credits) requires a minimum of two years of full-time study. Certificate programs may be completed after 30 or more credits are earned. However, with the flexibility of our day, evening and Saturday classes, you can pursue full or part-time study with a class schedule that is tailored to your own needs.
