Academic Workload

Academic Workload

At Oklahoma City Community College a normal academic load is 12 to 16 credit hours for a 16-week instructional session.

Enrolling in 16 credits or more during a 16 week instructional session OR enrolling in 8 credits or more during an 8 week instructional session translates into approximately 60 hours of time commitment each week.  When a student’s academic workload may exceed a full time job, it is strongly recommended that a student accesses the resources available to support academic success.  Below is a list of key resources.  If a student should have questions or would like to speak with an academic advisor to discuss their academic workload, please call 682-7535 or email academicadvisor@occc.edu.

Enrollment cannot exceed 24 credit hours during a 16 week instructional session or 12 credit hours in an 8 week instructional session.
