First Time College Students - Welcome to OCC!​

Regardless of your educational background and goal, you must apply for admission as a "First Time College Student". For those of you participating in the Early Start Program, you must re-apply to the college as a "First Time College Student"​ as well.​ 

Apply Early!​​

You will not be able to begin completing your Enrollment Steps until you have applied, AND received your acceptance email from admissions containing your student ID number and MyOCC ​log in information.   ​

High School Applicant: ​If you applied as a high school student and NOT as a First-Time College student, you will not qualify for Freshman Priority Registration. You will need to re-apply as a "First Time College Student." For help with this, students can contact Enrollment Services.​​
