How To Access Your Online Course

Distance Education courses allow students to take classes at their convenience from home or work. Students need access to a computer with internet browser software and an internet service provider account to access course material, to turn in assignments, and to communicate with the instructor and classmates. Distance learning students are expected to be familiar with computers and the internet. Scroll down for detailed registration and course login instructions.

Successful distance learning students actively participate in class on a regular basis just like a face-to-face class. Taking courses through distance education is not easier, but distance education allows more flexibility by reducing travel time and bringing the course to the student's location. Computer access is available in the Learning Commons.

Academic advising is an important part of student success. Please schedule an advising appointment prior to registration.

Each term, OCCC provides Distance Education (DE) classes taught by OCCC instructors and hosts Distance Education classes taught by instructors from other colleges. Requests for DE classes OCCC hosts must be processed individually. Therefore, you will not be able to register for Distance Education classes using your myOCCC account. Hosted Distance Education course requests must be processed by an OCCC staff member. Space is limited so you must submit your request early and be aware that not every student will get a space in the class(es) they request.  Students will register for Distance Education OCCC provides using their myOCCC account.

  • Look at the Class Schedule and select an alternate face-to-face class in case the online course you requested fills early.  

  • Watch your email for notices from distancelearnrequests@occc.cc.or.us that either a) confirm your registration in the course(s) you requested OR b) place you on a waitlist.

  • Your online class(es) will appear on your printable schedule in your myOCCC within 24 to 60 hours after the start of online registration.

Please Note:

 The maximum number of credits you can register for each term is 18 credit hours. If DE courses exceed this limit, your request will NOT be processed. Please ensure you have completed the pre-requisites for the DE class you are requesting.

Starting Summer Term 2013, you will be able to register for Distance Education classes that are provided by OCCC through your MyOCCC account the same way that you register for your in-person courses. Provided Distance Education courses are taught by OCCC instructors. 

You will still need to complete and submit a Distance Education Course Request Form if you would like to take a Distance Education course that is hosted by Oregon Coast Community College. Hosted Distance Education courses are taught by instructors from other colleges, and OCCC hosts these classes in order to offer a broader course selection to OCCC students.
