Returning Students - Welcome Back to OCC!

​​​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 MyCoast account.​

​​​​Enrollment Steps​​​​

To ensure summer priority registration, complete the steps by March 16th.

  1. ​​Apply Online to OCC - For tips and more information​.​
