Honors Orientation
The 2-hour Honors Orientation is an opportunity for prospective and current honor students at OCC to learn about the variety of honors opportunities available on our campus and beyond.

Among other things, the orientation will include the latest information about Honors Program enrollment privileges and benefits; honors conferences; participation in the Honors Student Council (HSC); the differences among the honor societies, the Honors Program, and honors clubs; the honor rolls (President's List, Dean's List, Honors List); Honors Night; scholarships, and more.

Students considering applying should review the current enrollment criteria (see link at left) before scheduling an Honors Orientation. Those who wish to apply to the Honors Program must attend at least the first hour of an Honors Orientation before submitting their applications. No Honors Orientation is required for honor society membership, though prospective applicants are certainly welcome to attend.

To reserve a seat in a future Honors Orientation (see list at the bottom of this page), please send an email using your STUDENT EMAIL ACCOUNT ONLY to .

NOTE: we will ONLY correspond with you at your student email address.**

Seating may be quite limited, so you may want to give one or two alternate dates in case your first-choice session is filled before your reservation request is received.
Your reservation will be confirmed by return email. Please continue to check your email until your Orientation date for last-minute changes of location or cancellations. Your reservation confirmation will also contain several documents that we'll refer to in the Orientation. Please print these out and bring them with you.
