The earlier the better! View the registration and academic calendar here. Plan your courses ahead of time in Student Planning so you will be ready when it opens.

OCC offers a wide variety of tutoring and student support. If your GPA falls below a certain point, it can affect how many credits you are allowed to register for. View policy #5156 regarding academic sanction information.

When a student registers, they should be prepared to pay for courses in full or start an applicable payment plan.

Did you know…?

You can spread out your payments by setting up a payment plan!

Yes, students enrolled in 3 or more credits in a term can enroll in the Payment Plan. Each term will have an individual payment plan available, except Summer Post Session. All students (3 credits or more) will have a $30.00 enrollment fee plus the calculated deposit. Enrollment fees are non-refundable. However, the earlier a student registers and enrolls in the payment plan, the higher the number of payment due dates will be available.

Set Up a Payment Plan by following the steps listed below:

  • Sign in to Ocean Connect
  • Click on Student Finance and select Make a Payment
  • Click the Payment link at the top
  • Select Enroll Today
  • Select Proceed to Processor
