Frequently Asked Questions

What is OMS?
OMS stands for the Office of Multicultural Services.  We welcome all students and especially reach out to students of color and international students who are encouraged to take advantage of OMS while adjusting to college life.  Advocacy and support as well as advising are our major services.   OMS is designed to provide a consistent focus for students from culturally diverse backgrounds by coordinating academic, social and personal-support services.

The Office of Multicultural Services also strives to increase the cultural awareness of all members of the college community by supporting various programs and clubs on campus and by acting as a liaison to the county community.  The Ocean County Multicultural Board is the framework that brings campus and community representatives together for planning and organizing these activities.
