Summer & Fall Registration


OCC has four academic schools, including liberal arts and humanities, business management and social sciences, nursing and STEM. Each school offers a variety of degrees and certificates.  Within each of the three degree types are several choices of programs (or majors). Students should choose a major that aligns with their transfer plans and career goals.


Successful transfer from OCC requires planning. The Academic Advising staff can help students access information on two- and four-year colleges/universities and plan courses to parallel the first two years at the four-year institution where they 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.
