Complete a degree through our partnership with the Ben Hudnall Memorial Trust!

Degree student steps are broken down into two parts:

Part 1 – Meet with your Ben Hudnall Memorial Trust Career Counselor and discuss your intent to complete a degree. They will refer you to your Ben Hudnall Academic Success Coach who will discuss the program with you and issue to OCC a referral. That referral approves your Ben Hudnall benefits. Once you have met with your Academic Success Coach you may apply online

Note: You may have already completed Part 1, partially or in full and that’s fine! Since OCC does not have an application fee, there is no harm in applying first. We can assist in connecting you with the appropriate Ben Hudnall representatives to secure the referral form. The Academic Success Coach will send the referral directly to OCC.

Part 2 – Enrollment at OCC:
