College Pathways Program

College Pathways Program supports and assists high school seniors with the transition to college – regardless of where they choose to attend. The program is designed to eliminate barriers to college entrance through discussions on:

  • The college selection process
  • College applications
  • Funding college and financial aid
  • FAFSA completion
  • College placement testing
  • Career, degree planning, and advisement

Through the College Pathways Program, high school seniors are able to make confident, informed choices about their futures and are guaranteed lifetime acceptance to OCC.
