Interested in getting ahead by earning college credit while still in high school? Look no further than OCCC’s concurrent enrollment program.

Concurrent enrollment is open to incoming high school juniors and seniors. Students can enroll in courses at OCCC, which allows them to earn high school and college credit at the same time, saving both time and money.

Concurrent students can take classes on OCCC’s Main Campus, online and even in some local high schools. OCCC will waive up to 18 credit hours of tuition every year to eligible juniors and seniors; however, concurrent students are responsible for fees and textbooks for all courses in which they enroll at OCCC.
