This has been a busy enrollment period for the Office of Academic Advising. During the last three weeks of peak enrollment, our office has received more than 4,100 student visits.

As always, students can avoid long lines during the peak enrollment period, which is the first few weeks before classes begin, by choosing classes at the beginning of the enrollment period.

We encourage students to start meeting with an adviser in late March for summer and fall enrollment. Visiting with an adviser early in the semester is good planning. Students who set their goals early and have an action plan are often times more successful in their academic careers.

 

Early planning includes planning for graduation and transfer to a four-year institution. To help students seeking to transfer, we will host the Transfer and Graduation Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 29. More than 20 colleges and universities will be in attendance. They are here to help OCCC students learn more about their programs and the transfer process.

This is a great opportunity for students to connect to their next institution, learn about the many majors available for their next step in academics, and to plan for their future careers.

Students can learn about scholarships, the application process, multiple majors and how financial aid works in the transfer process.

Students also will have multiple opportunities to visit another institution over the next few months. OCCC will be taking groups of students to visit the University of Oklahoma and the University of Central Oklahoma.

Visits will include lunch, tours and a chance to get your questions answered by visiting with an adviser or transfer specialist. OCCC will visit the University of Central Oklahoma on Jan. 31, Feb. 8, and March 6, and the University of Oklahoma on Feb. 17, March 2, and March 9.

Students who are interested in visiting OU or UCO should contact the Transfer Center by emailing linda.k.little@occc or calling 405-682-7567 for more information

If you are interested in getting ahead on that next step in your educational career, make sure that you visit the Transfer and Graduation Fair and take a tour to OU and UCO.
