STEP 4: MANDATORY ENGLISH/MATH PLACEMENT

Returning students will likely have an existing English placement on file or qualify for one of the exemptions.

Returning students that have passed a math class at OCC with at least a “C” or qualify for one of the other exemptions - DO NOT have to take OCC’s math placement test.

NOTE: DO NOT take OCC’s math placement test unless you plan on registering for a math class within a year of testing as the results expire.

An OCC counselor can answer your questions regarding your student record and placement testing or exemptions.
