If you are in need of an institution that will allow you to broaden your horizons through earning an associate degree, completing the first two years of a bachelor’s degree or are simply looking to complete courses to help you become gainfully employed, Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) may be the right school for you.

OCCC is an institution for all ages and serves recent high school graduates, working individuals, and even retirees in three major locations; Newport, Lincoln City and Waldport along with other campuses scattered across the county. The OCCC community is one that supports diversity and offers a wide range of courses to facilitate its students.

With a population of over 1,500 students per year, the Oregon Coast Community College offers both credit and noncredit classes on either a full time or part time basis.

At OCCC, students who wish to transfer to a four year college are expected to complete the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) and the Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) degrees.   For students who wish to complete a baccalaureate in the area of business, there is The Associates of Science Oregon Transfer/Business (ASOT/Business) degree.

Upon completion of this degree program, students are able to register at Oregon’s Public University as juniors. It is good to note however, that completing this program does not mean immediate admissions to the business baccalaureate program of your choice.
