Welcome to the Ocean County College Testing Center! Our center is the place to go for academic and certification testing. Our mission is to administer professionally proctored exams and meet individuals’ needs to help with academic or professional success. We are committed to maintaining academic integrity and we adhere to the National College Testing Association Standards and Guidelines.
When you apply to OCC, you may need to take a placement test to determine which English and math courses you need to take, or you may want to see if you can place into advanced-level math courses. We offer these tests on-site six days a week, as well as online. You can make an appointment or request to schedule a remote placement test with a virtual proctor by going to go.ocean.edu/test.
For more information, email OCCTesting@ocean.edu.
Our role in the Counseling Center is to help students be successful in their classes by attending to their health and wellness needs. We are here to help you explore options and solutions to challenges you have while you are a student. We are highly skilled and educated professionals dedicated to serving our campus community.
We provide many services, including short-term, solution-focused counseling, intervention for students who are academically at risk, and a program to support students who are in recovery. We provide prevention programs designed to raise awareness, fight stigma, educate, and encourage healthy choices. We educate our campus community on resources regarding suicide, alcohol and substance abuse, domestic and sexual violence, and mental health awareness.

The mission of Student Support Services (SSS) at Ocean County College is to assist and encourage first-generation college students, low-income college students, and college students with disabilities to complete an associate degree. Our staff understands the challenges these students face better than many others: every member of the SSS team either identifies as first-generation, low-income, or a person with a disability.
SSS operates in a holistic, inclusive, and collaborative environment, and aims to immerse students in a challenging and engaging student experience by connecting students with vital campus support services. Along with the academic services provided by the program, SSS takes students on cultural trips, like Broadway shows, symphonies, museum trips, and more- all free of charge.
