How do I make the best decisions registering for classes? Who can help me with the process? What are the steps I need to take to make sure I get the classes I want?
We get these types of questions all the time. So we created this guide which has everything you really need to know about registering at OCC. We broke it down into two sections: new & current students so you understand the steps you need to take.
Registering for Current Students
Step 1: Meet with Your Advisor
First, plan out the courses that you will need for the next semester using our online tool in Webadvisor. See what classes you’ll need for the next semester and the offerings.
Then, meet with your faculty advisor to determine the courses you should be taking for the next semester. Visit your faculty advisor’s office and schedule your appointment today!
Step 2: Wait for Your Registration Window
Make sure you’re ready to register for classes during your window. The earlier you register for classes the more likely you’ll be to get into all the ones you want.
If you register before November 16th you’ll be entered to win a pair of wireless beats.
Determining your registration window is based on the number of credits you’ve completed towards your degree and/or your status as a member of a priority registration group. Check out the full breakdown below.
