Academic Advising

 

Academic Advisors are ready to assist degree- and certificate-seeking students in the Oklahoma City Community College Office of Academic Advising.

The student’s previous educational training, experience, college entrance exams, and other relevant test results will be used to help in the placement and selection of courses. Entry-level abilities in reading, writing, and mathematics are required to enroll in credit courses.

Students who need additional help to meet required entry-level skills, certain course prerequisites, or high school curricular requirements will be recommended to enroll in courses to develop these skills before enrolling in higher-level courses.

Academic Advisors assist all students in the process of deciding on a major, career exploration and guidance, General Education and Transfer process advisement, academic planning, enrollment in appropriate course work, preparing for application-based programs, and assists those who would benefit from individualized assistance in creating an academic plan.

Returning students who are familiar with their degree requirements and those not seeking a degree or certificate do not need to consult with an Academic Advisor. Students are responsible for following their selected degree program requirements.

Students are also encouraged to work with their Faculty Advisor in the academic discipline of their degree choice. A Faculty Advisor can help ensure that major specific educational objectives are met efficiently. If you have questions on course selection, entry-level skills required, or general academic information contact Office of Academic Advising at www.occc.edu/acs or call (405) 682-7535.
