Why OCC

Why OCC?

When we say “Community is our middle name,” we mean it. We invite you to explore how OCC is committed to enhancing the quality of life, health, and safety in Oakland County. Since many students become contributing members of the local economy, we encourage you to interact with us.

OCC is one of the largest community colleges in Michigan. We offer a caring environment, excellent instructors, smaller classes, a breadth of resources and many educational options to meet our community's needs. We have an array of career-based courses and programs to earn an associate degree or certification in approximately 100 career fields. Many students take advantage of more than 200 articulation agreements throughout the state and transfer to a four-year institution.

Workforce Development or Personal Enrichment

Businesses utilize our programs to develop a highly-skilled workforce and provide job retraining, while community members can experience a variety of personal enrichment classes.

Community

With three gourmet eateries open to the public, two theater locations, acres of nature trails, and fitness facilities, we embody our slogan, “Community is our middle name.”
