To get more help choosing classes, check the Student Planning section of MyOCC. It lists the classes you still need to take to graduate.
Two tips about choosing classes:
- Check that you’ve taken any required prerequisites. These are classes you must take
before the class you’ve chosen.
- Make sure you register for any required corequisites. These are classes you must take
at the same time as the class you’ve chosen. For example, some science classes have
lecture sections and corequisite lab sections.
Preliminary Registration Steps
After being admitted, the you should:
- Participate (if necessary) in English Placement (through your OCC email account) or
- Contact the campus counseling office to arrange an appointment with a counselor.
How to Register
You can register for classes two ways:
- In MyOCC. A video and a webpage walk you through the registration process.
- Using the OCC Connect mobile app. You can download the Android version of the app
from Google Play and the Apple version from the App Store. The Apple version works
on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
Both online registration methods are available daily from 7 am to 11:45 pm.
