College Guest Students

Home from college for the summer and want to get ahead in your college coursework? Many students attending another college or university attend OCC as a college guest student, whether during the summer months when they are home or even during a semester while still enrolled at the other school.

If you are interested in being a college guest student, your first step is to discuss this with your counselor at your home institution to ensure the classes taken at OCC will transfer back to your home institution. It may be necessary to supply a copy of your college transcript to OCC so we are aware of OCC prerequisite courses you have completed at your home institution.

For every semester you plan to attend OCC as a college guest student, you will need to complete a College Guest Application.  At the conclusion of your semester at OCC, make sure to have your official transcript sent from OCC to your home institution.
