Registration Information

​​ Welcome to the OCC Registration Information Page! 

Registration Appointments

Registration app​ointments are assigned a few weeks before registration begins. See Registration Periods for dates and more information.

  • To find your registration appointment, you will log in to MyCoast portal, click on Registration Status. Select the term to view your appointment.
  • Your registration appointment is NOT a physical appointment for which you must appear on campus. Rather, it is the earliest possible date and time that you can register online for a given semester. You can register from any computer with Internet Access. 



Plan My Schedule with Schedule Planner

Schedule Planner is a tool that allows you to build and compare schedules that best fit your work-school-life balance via your MyCoast portal. Based off the courses you want and your availability to attend, you are able to shop for the best schedule possible. 

  • Build schedules before your registration date for a quick, easy registration experience.
  • When you find the schedule you want, send it to your shopping cart. 

This presentation gives an overview of the Schedule Planner tool.
