OCCC Grads

Have you started your college education, but haven’t quite finished? Are you thinking about returning to school? With Oklahoma City Community College’s (OCCC) Adult Degree Completion Program, Saturdays in December are the time to enroll.

 

What is the Adult Degree Completion Program at OCCC?

Two years ago, OCCC began offering associate degree programs designed for busy adults who have already earned some college credits and want to finish their degrees.

OCCC’s Adult Degree Completion Program is for students who have more than 24-credit hours, but still need to graduate. Another “bonus” is - the first one is on us. OCCC is encouraging eligible students to come in, try us out, and the first three-credit hour class will be tuition free.

 

Why Should I Enroll this December?

These Saturdays in December – Dec. 1, 8 and 15 – are OCCC Power Up Saturdays. Students who complete an application for admission in the Adult Degree Completion Program on a Saturday during December 2012 will be eligible to win an OKC Thunder/OCCC Power Pack including four free tickets to an OKC Thunder basketball game at Chesapeake Arena in downtown Oklahoma City.

 

Research conducted by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education has shown that more than 300,000 Oklahomans have completed some college course work but have yet to finish their degree. Of that number, 87,000 Oklahomans have left college with significant course work completed but have not attained their associate degree. OCCC wants to change that.

OCCC Recruitment and Admissions Power Up Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Courses for the degree programs are offered at OCCC both on-campus and online. To enroll or for more information about Power Up Saturdays, the Reach Higher Adult Degree Completion Program and a tuition free course paid for by OCCC for eligible students, please contact the Office of Recruitment and Admissions at (405) 682-OCCC, or email reachhigher@occc.edu.
