2021 High School Graduates
Are you graduating from an Oklahoma City or Western Heights public school in 2021? If so, now is the time to take advantage of OCCC’s OKCGo Program!
The OKCGo Program is available to eligible high school graduates from Oklahoma City Public High Schools, selected public charter high schools, and Western Heights Public High School. This is part of a financial aid package for the completion of one associate’s degree (AAS, AA, or AS) at OCCC with a maximum award of 63 credit hours. The purpose of the program is to help students receiving partial or no financial grants or scholarships pay for college. The program covers any tuition that is remaining after all other grants, OK Promise, OTAG, and other scholarships are applied to a student's account. Students are responsible for fees and books.
