Junior/Senior Concurrent Program
Accredited high schools: in order to be eligible to enroll in concurrent classes, you must either have a 3.0 unweighted GPA, ACT Composite or Pre-ACT of 19; or SAT or PSAT of 990. The ACT/Pre-ACT Composite of 19; or SAT/PSAT of 990; or the 3.0 will get you admitted, but you must also meet the sub-scores for the courses you are planning to take at the college. Sub-scores can be met through official ACT scores, PLAN scores, Pre-SAT, SAT or taking college placement tests.
Homeschooled/unaccredited high schools: Students must provide an ACT Composite of 19 or SAT 990 score for admission.

- You must be admitted and must enter your OCCC ID and OCCC e-mail address to upload. If you do not have your Student ID number, you may enter seven zeros: 000000.
- You must include your birthdate on the forms.
- All sections of the forms must be filled out completely. Before submitting your forms, ensure that the following areas are completed: name, current high school, semester, Junior or Senior status, number of classes taken at the high school, counselor signature, and student and parent/guardian signatures.
- The Concurrent Approval forms are required every semester while you are taking concurrent courses. Even though classes are taught in 8-week terms, the forms are still submitted once for each semester: Summer, Fall, and Spring.
Students are responsible for the textbooks of all courses in which they enroll at OCCC. To view or search for course material, you can go to our bookstore.
Terms to know:
- Open Source- All coursework is available for free via your classroom professor or within Moodle (the online learning environment).
- OCCC Day One Access- This is a service provided for students that makes your course materials available to you digitally, within your class on Moodle, on the first day of class. There is a charge for the eTextbooks and/or Courseware. This price is extremely competitive and even cheaper than purchasing directly from the publisher. The charge varies slightly from book to book and is automatically added to your OCCC student account.
What classes can I take?
After you have been admitted and have sent in your Concurrent Approval form, it is time to select your classes. Below is a list of the most common courses concurrently enrolled students have taken. Students are not limited to the classes on the list. Students need to meet requirements for only one column on the chart below:

Returning Concurrent Students
Concurrent students must maintain a minimum 2.0 college GPA in order to continue enrollment as a high school student. If a concurrent student is deemed ineligible while in high school, he or she may resume classes upon high school graduation after submitting an official and final high school transcript.
If a concurrent student is deemed eligible, a returning student must turn in the Concurrent Approval Forms by uploading them to the Concurrent Approval Forms Upload or emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Before submitting your forms, ensure that the following areas are completed: name, current high school, semester, Junior or Senior status, number of classes taken at the high school, counselor signature, and student and parent/guardian signatures.
*Please note, you will not be able to enroll online until the Concurrent Approval Forms have been uploaded and processed by the Concurrent Office. Once the forms have been processed, an e-mail will be sent to your OCCC account informing you of the next steps to take to complete enrollment.
Returning concurrent students are not required to meet with a concurrent advisor prior to registering. You do have the option of registering online using the student planning software located in the student’s OCCC Portal (located under the Self-Service for students tab). However, if you would like to, you can call 405-682-7543 to schedule an appointment.
