I did not want to attend OCC outQuite BrightSocial Work
I did not want to attend OCC out of high school. It seemed like the lame college high school drop outs went to, and not for me - a 3.2 GPA and 28 ACT. With that said, I have loved it at OCC... You are getting fantastic education in small class sizes at a price less than a fraction of what your high school classmates are paying for university classes that are valued the same, and yet they are learning less at some points! It is true that the downsides of this are in the lack of campus "atmosphere" and clubs and extracurriculars. And while they do exist, for me at least, I am content with joining them upon transfer for my bachelors.

Don't go here. There are much better community colleges nearby that do a much job.

The Financial Aid Process at this college isQuite BrightSchool of Information
The Financial Aid Process at this college is absolutely payment plans available to hold classes until financial aid finally processes your package...I was deregistered numerous times due to 4 to 6 week lead times for processing only to find out they need additional paperwork. Administration as a whole at this college are very disorganized, and seemingly uneducated on their own processes.
