Creating Your Schedule

Tips for Making Your Schedule

Students should design class schedules based on their individual needs and learning styles.

Students should have a balance between school, work, and other responsibilities.

Students should allow plenty of time outside of class to complete assignments. Remember, for every one hour you spend in class, students should plan for two hours of study time.

Students  may choose classes that are held during the day, evening or weekend. Classes are offered Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 10:45 pm.  Weekend classes are held on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Classes are also offered at 9 off-campus sites throughout Ocean County and at OCC's Southern Education Center in Manahawkin.

Full-time students who intend to graduate in two years should enroll in 16 credits per semester or be prepared to take courses in the summer or winter terms.
