STEP 7: MEET WITH A COUNSELOR

While counseling is not mandatory for transfer students, you are highly encouraged to meet with a counselor to review official or unofficial transcripts, identify classes that meet pre-requisites and assist with course selection to ensure progress toward student goals, including certificate and degree completion.

Complete Steps 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 before you meet with a counselor so the registration hold can be released.  Step 5-Applying for Financial Aid is highly recommended due to the strong likelihood of an award, but it is not required prior to your appointment.

NOTE: Students unable to request official transcripts in time for the semester start can be granted a one semester waiver with unofficial transcripts by an OCC counselor.
