First Time College

Standard Admission Process

Applying for admission to Oregon Coast Community College is fast, easy and free. High school graduates or non high school graduates 16 years or older are eligible for admissions to Oregon Coast Community College. If you are less than 16 years old, please contact Student Services at 541-867-8501 for information about underage admissions.
Complete the Online Admission Application. It's free and takes about 10 minutes to complete.
Once you submit your admissions application, you will receive an email with important next steps regarding placement testing, new student orientation and academic advising, registering for classes, financial aid, and buying books and supplies.
Although OCCC has an open admissions policy, our limited entry programs (Aquarium Science, Criminal Justice, Medical Assisting, Nursing and Nursing Assistant) have specific entrance requirements. Visit that program's webpage to view their specific requirements.
