Returning Students - Welcome Back to OCC!

​​​Who is a Returning Student?

Returning students are those who have previously attended Orange Coast College but have missed the past two semesters (spring and fall) or more. Returning students must apply for admission to be assigned a registration appointment and to activate their MyOCC account.



How Will I know when I am Accepted?

Once you submit your online application, you will immediately receive an email confirming receipt of  your application. The email will be sent to the email address you supplied on your application. Approximately 3-5 business days later you will receive a follow up email, which will provide information on accessing MyOCC, registering for classes and priority registration.  Please read all the information in the emails you receive. ​

Verify Your Email

Please verify that the email address you provide is correct so that you receive confirmation that your application has been submitted. 

Spam Filters
Some Internet Service Providers filter mail from Orange Coast College so please check your trash folder if you don't receive an email response in about one week of submitting your application.  You can avoid this by adding to your Approved Senders list.  This is especially important if you use providers such as AOL, Yahoo, EarthLink, MSN, Hotmail, or Roadrunner and/or you use spam filters.

Equal Opportunity

It is the policy of the Coast Community College District to provide all persons with equal employment and educational opportunities regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, disability, or marital status.
