Frequently Asked Questions

Students can choose to study on a full-time (at least 12 or more credits, or typically 4 or more classes) or a part-time basis (11 or less credits).

We recommend that full-time students take 5 classes (15 credits on average) each semester. Students with no developmental requirements can successfully complete their degree requirements in two years (2 Fall and 2 Spring semesters). If a student takes four courses or 12 credits per semester, they can stay on track to graduate within 2 years with additional Winter or Summer study.

Some student populations such as EOF, NJ Stars, and Student Athletes must register for a full-time schedule. Please also note that full-time students need to submit proof of required immunization to the college prior to registering for their second semester at OCC.

Summer and Winter terms can be used to “catch up” or repeat courses if needed. Courses offered during these terms cover the same material as their Fall/Spring counterparts in a much shorter period of time. Summer courses are accelerated and are offered in 5, 7.5 or 10 week sessions and the Winter term is only 2 weeks long.

Because these terms are accelerated, students should expect to take less classes than during the Fall and Spring terms.

Students who qualify for financial aid do not have to study on a full-time basis to receive some aid. If you are registered for 6 or more credits, you may receive Federal, State and institutional aid. Taking less than 6 credits will make you eligible for Federal Pell Grants only.

Students who take Summer or Winter classes might be eligible to receive financial aid. Please check your Financial Aid Self-Service or email financialaid@ocean.edu if you have additional questions.
