Earn a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree at OCC

Your college education should be worth a fortune — not cost one! Earn credits toward your bachelor’s or master’s degree through the Kean Ocean University Partnership.

Kean University and Ocean County College have established a partnership (KEAN OCEAN) that enables area residents to complete the upper-division courses required for certain Kean University undergraduate degree programs and specific graduate programs online or on OCC’s campus. Students who take advantage of this opportunity stay close to home while completing their college education.

This unique partnership was formalized in 2006 and has been highly successful, offering many students a pathway to affordable, high-quality education. A bachelor’s degree in one of 40 different programs, with 9 programs completely online, will cost approximately $35,000 versus $30,000 per year at most universities.
