Step 2--Orientation


​​​​​​​​​​About The Orientation Requirement ​

All students are required to complete orientation prior to registering for classes.* Please note that orientations are campus-specific, so OCC students will still have to complete the orientation even if they completed an orientation at another campus. 

When To Complete the Online Orientation ​

After submitting an online ​​application, students will receive an email from admissions within 3-7 business days containing their student ID number, as well as instructions to log into MyOCC. Students can then access the online orientation anytime via MyOCC. We encourage students to complete their orientation as soon as they receive their confirmation email from OCC Admissions.

Check Your Eligibility

When you have completed your online orientation, click the "View My Eligibility" link on MyOCC. It is a good idea to check this after each step to ensure that you are eligible in the system for FPR. 


Technical Issues with your Online Orientation?   

  • If you successfully completed the online orientation, but are still not seeing the green checkmark on your eligibility screen, you should email to ask about clearing your orientation; be sure to include your name and student ID number in the email.​​


*Orientation Exemptions

Students may be exempted from orientation if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • Completed an AA/AS degree or higher
  • Enrolled at the college solely to take a course that is legally mandated for employment
  • Enrolled at the college as a special admit student

Please note that even if you are exempt from the orientation, you may still wish to complete it in order to be eligible for Priority Registration.​
