Opening of registrations for the summer and fall sessions at the OCCC | New

Enrollment is open for the summer and fall terms at Oregon Coast Community College.

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on credits or take an interesting course for fun. Summer 2022 courses include U.S. Government, Global Regional Geography, American Indian History, Science Fiction Literature, Disc Golf, Surfing, and more. The summer term begins on July 5 and ends on August 20.

For fall 2022, students can expect a solid lineup of classes, activities, and events. The fall term will feature a wider selection of courses, including computer science, Japanese culture, environmental literature, disc golf, surfing, and more. The fall term begins September 26 and ends December 10.

Discover more career options this fall, with courses such as CG131, Careers in Aviation, or ED100, Introduction to Careers in Education. The Careers in Aviation course, taught at OCCC’s North County Center in Lincoln City, is presented in partnership with the Career Tech Aviation program. Students exploring a four-year degree in a field such as aeronautical engineering will learn about related career options through this program.

The Introduction to Careers in Education course is a first step in the Oregon Coast Teacher Education Pathway, a transfer program created in partnership with the Lincoln County School District and Western Oregon University. The program, only a few years old, is already seeing students teaching and preparing for great teaching careers right here in Lincoln County.

Another exciting course option is CS160, Exploring Computer Science. This course explores the field of computer science and provides an overview of computer architecture, software development engineering, data organization, problem-solving strategies, ethics, and the theory of calculation. Students will explore career options and develop rudimentary software development skills. This course is transferable to a four-year institution and is applicable to an Associate of Science degree.

The pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong process, and OCCC is pleased to offer senior learners the opportunity to enhance new and existing skills through challenging and intellectually stimulating programs. Oregon residents age 60 or older can take tuition-free credit courses – course and college fees will still apply, and availability may be limited in some courses.

For those who want help registering for classes, “on-site” admissions events are scheduled to guide students through the admissions process and register for classes on-site. Student Success Coaches will help students enroll in courses specific to the student’s academic goals – whether it’s a one-year certificate, two-year associate’s degree or a four-year university transfer degree. Financial aid staff will also be on hand to help guide students through the financial aid process. If students are unsure if they are ready to enroll, staff will also be available to answer any questions you may have about getting started.

OCCC offers transfer degrees that can save students thousands from earning the first two years of their four-year degree at a community college. The OCCC also offers an educational pathway in conjunction with Western Oregon University and Oregon State University, as well as specialized programs including early childhood education, business, computer science, nursing, EMT, Physician Assistant, Nursing Assistant, Welding, Aquarium Science and many more. .

Students interested in exploring the many offerings at Oregon Coast Community College are encouraged to attend one of these summer events or meet with a Student Success Coach anytime to discuss the programs and subjects offered and the how they correspond to the academic and professional aspirations of each student.
