OCCC views academic advising as an important component in student success. All students are required to meet with an advisor before beginning study at the College. Advisors can help the student understand College procedures and policies, as well as answer your questions. Advisors will assist with academic planning resulting in short and long term plans for transfer degrees, vocational certificates, or taking classes to improve skills.
Students should make an appointment to meet with an advisor for initial and complex advising questions. Student Services staff try to answer individual questions on an “as needed, walk-in” basis. Advising is available in Newport and Lincoln City by appointment. Call 541-867-8501 to schedule an advising appointment by phone or you can make an appointment in person at the Central County Campus in Newport or at the North County Center in Lincoln City.
