Submissions of Academic Credentials
Applicants must submit official and complete high school and college transcripts, test scores, and other credentials during the admission process. Failure to list all previously attended colleges or the submission of false information is grounds for denial of admission or immediate suspension.
All credentials submitted become the property of Oklahoma City Community College and are a part of the student's academic record. They will not be returned or released. Students wishing to obtain such documents must contact the original issuing institution. Returning students who have had no enrollment activity at Oklahoma City Community College for a period of five years or more will be required to resubmit academic records from previous institutions attended.
Evaluation of Academic Preparation
All credentials submitted during the application process will be evaluated during the admission process. Students may be required to take a college assessment test to determine a proficiency level in English, reading, mathematics, and science. This test is used as a placement instrument to foster the academic success of students enrolling at Oklahoma City Community College.
