High school students must meet all course pre-requisites and necessary qualifications prior to registering for the course designated on their form. Check out this video on How to Check and Clear a Prerequisite
High school students have the opportunity to enroll in a maximum of 11 units each semester (3 units max for summer and winter intersession).
Enrolling in college courses creates a permanent record (college transcript). Students should plan to study a minimum of two hours each week for each hour of class time (unit).
The University of California recognizes college semester-length courses of 3-semester units as equivalent to 10 credits earned in an eligible one-year high school course. Exception: The first semester of a college level foreign language course is considered to be equivalent to the first two years of high school foreign language (20 credits).
Students planning to apply coursework taken at OCC toward college or university admission or progress toward a degree should contact the respective institutions regarding their policies for prior coursework.
