Admissions Policy—Registered Sex Offenders
Oregon Coast Community College is a place where persons under the age of 18 regularly congregate. Because OCCC programs enroll high school age students under the age of 18, one can expect to come into contact with persons under the age of 18 throughout the College during its hours of operation. Given the College’s single-building campuses and its relatively small size, it is not possible to avoid interactions with these students.
OCCC welcomes students who are able to benefit from its services and are able to abide by local, state and federal laws. The College reserves the right to refuse admission to a student when admitting that student would violate the special conditions of his/her parole, probation or post-prison supervision. This policy also covers others obliged to register as sex offenders who cannot be in places where persons under the age of 18 regularly congregate. It is incumbent upon Lincoln County Community Corrections along with the Oregon State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision to inform the College when an individual can be in contact with persons under the age of 18 and thereby be admitted to the College.
