If your class schedule is not adequate proof that you are currently enrolled at OCC, you may use this form to request a letter that verifies you are an international student at OCC.  The letter will include your degree program, current number of units enrolled, first semester at OCC, and estimated semester of program completion. Please be aware that we cannot verify your grades or academic standing. You must order official transcripts for proof of your grades and academic standing.
