Oakland Community College offers learning opportunities to anyone seeking to further their education. A comprehensive placement program designed to identify basic skills assists students to select and maximize the appropriate academic program. Our placement process promotes educational access, equality and the appropriate use of institutional resources across OCC’s five campuses.
Admission is open to all high school graduates, GED recipients, college transfer students and persons 18 years of age or older. Prospective students under 18 may apply for admission if their high school class has graduated. Others may be admitted provided they demonstrate the capacity and maturity to benefit from programs and courses offered by the College, and they should visit the Enrollment Services Office at the campus they plan to attend.
Though the College generally does not demand a minimum grade point average, SAT, or ACT test score, some specialized academic programs at OCC may have unique admissions requirements. Students are expected to demonstrate a compatibility with the mission, purposes and values of the College, and must complete the entire application for admission. Incomplete information may cause rejection of the application; false information may result in dismissal without refund of tuition or fees. Admission to the College does not guarantee admission to any or all programs of study.
