Guest Students

Attend OCC as a Guest Student and cut the cost, not your education! Complete one to two classes each year and enjoy the savings and joining the workforce ahead of schedule!

Taking summer classes is a popular option when university students are home for the summer. Completing summer coursework can allow students one to two semesters earlier.

Some even attend during fall and winter semesters.  Our online options make this even easier.

Check with your home institution before you register for OCC classes to make sure they’ll count toward your degree. Be sure to check the course pre-requisites for the classes you intend to take as well.
