Transfer Services

Successful transfer from OCC requires planning.

The Academic Advising staff can help you:

  • Access information on two- and four-year colleges/universities
  • Plan your course of study to parallel the first two years at the four-year institution where you plan to transfer

Students interested in transferring should meet with an advisor early in their career with OCC. For more information, view a tutorial on how to use NJ Transfer.

New Jersey - Transfer Law

New Jersey has a state-wide agreement to assist students with transfer from a community college to a 4-year public institution. Under the Lampitt Law, community college students who complete an AA or AS degree will receive half of the credits needed for graduation with a Bachelor’s degree. Careful planning is essential for a smooth and efficient transfer experience.
