Monday, December 16, 2002
Fall semester final exams concluded Friday (Dec. 13). The campus will be closed for the holidays, Dec. 19 through Jan. 1. Spring classes begin on Monday, Feb. 3.
Spring enrollment figures were released Monday (Dec. 16) by OCC's Admissions and Records Office. The college enrolled a total of 16,902 students for the same date a year ago.
Despite the fact that the college's spring enrollment is even with last year's, OCC will offer 389 fewer course sections this spring. The college has scheduled 2,255 course sections for the spring of 2003, compared to 2,644 for the spring of 2002.
Registration by touch-tone telephone for new and returning students resumes Jan. 2 through Jan. 30. In-person, late registration will be conducted Feb. 3-13. All students who are California residents are charged an $11-per-unit registration fee for classes.
Spring applications are being accepted -- and registration appointments are available -- in OCC's Admissions Office. The office is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
OCC's spring class schedule is posted on the college's Internet web site (orangecoastcollege.com). Printed copies of the schedule are available for pick-up, free of charge, in the Admissions Office.
