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 as a current student. If you’re a new student, the process is a little different. Visit our website to check that out.
Important Note: All OCC students are required to update their emergency contact information this semester. Students can do this on Webadvisor under “User Account”
Step 1: Meet with Your Advisor
First, plan the courses that you will need for the next semester using our online tool in Webadvisor. If you need help with this, you can always stop into the advising center in Gordon.
Then, meet with your faculty advisor to determine the courses you should be taking for the next semester.
To determine who your advisor is:
- Login to Lazer Success and click on the home button
- Then click on my success network and look for someone labeled academic advisor
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.
Determining your registration window is based on the number of credits you’ve completed towards your degree. Check out the full breakdown below.
Note: Winter Registration is already open so there’s no need to wait to register for classes!
