Oklahoma City Community College is a community college in Oklahoma City that enrolls approximately 20,000 students. Founded in 1972, OCCC specializes in enhancing career skills and preparing students for transfer to four-year universities. The school offers both associate degrees and certificates of mastery.

OCCC has over ten Academic Divisions, including Arts and Humanities, Business, Information Technology, Health Professions, Science and Mathematics, Social Sciences, Cooperative Alliance Programs, and Corporate Learning.

The college also has six different labs: Accounting, the Biology Science Center, Communications, Engineering, Math, and Physical Science Center.

OCCC has an Articulation Agreement with the University of Maryland. Specifically, the Agreement is designed to help OCCC students of science transfer smoothly to the University of Maryland’s four-year online degree program.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Students under 21 years of age should submit a high school diploma or GED equivalent, as well as ACT or SAT results. Students over 21 don’t need to submit a high school diploma. All students are required to take a placement test, which helps OCCC officials determine the best course of study for each individual.

In addition, students must meet high school curriculum requirements, which include four units of English, three units of mathematics, two units of laboratory science, two units of history, one unit of citizenship, and three additional units of computer science, foreign language, or the previous mentioned subjects.

There are limited openings in some of the medical programs, where grade point average and field experience are among the determining factors for acceptance.

Transfer students should submit official transcripts from previous colleges. International students must possess a financial letter of support, as well as demonstrate English proficiency by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and score at least 500 on the paper version, 173 on the computer test, or 61 on the Internet version. Students from Australia, the Bahamas, British Isles, Canada, Guyana, Jamaica, Liberia, New Zealand, South Africa, or the West Indies are not required to take the TOEFL.

Financial Aid

Similarly, need based financial aid distribution is determined through Academics and State/District Residency. If you are not a need based student, non-need distribution for financial aid is determined by Academics and State/District Residency. Financial aid forms are FAFSA and Institution’s own financial aid form. Financial aid for students is readily accessible at this school.

Secrets to getting the best scholarships and financial aid in Oklahoma.


OCCC is located in Oklahoma City, the capitol of the state. While not as famous a tourist destination as places like San Francisco and New York, Oklahoma City has more than its share of cultural attractions. Perhaps the best known is the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum at the former site of the Murrah Federal Building. This solemn and moving memorial features 168 empty chairs that pay tribute to those who lost their life in the domestic terrorist bombing on April 19, 1995.

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is another popular destination. Recent exhibits featured works by Cezanne, American Impressionists, and artists of the Harlem Renaissance. Nature’s art is on display at the Myriad Botanical Gardens, particularly at the Crystal Bridge. This greenhouse conservatory, designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, houses plants from the tropical parts of the globe

Sports fan can catch the Oklahoma City RedHawks, the Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, at the city’s throwback stadium, AT&T Brickyard Ballpark. In addition, the NBA moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 when the Seattle Supersonics relocated to the city and became the Thunder. The city’s new NBA team—as well as its Arena League Football team, the Yard Dogz—play in the Ford Center.

For those travelers a little more adventurous, Dallas is just over three hours away by car.

Over two dozen clubs and organizations are available to OCCC students, including the Asian Student Association, Biology and Ecology Club, Black Students Association, Child Development Club, Cinematheque Society, Club Rec, College Poets and Writers, Engineering Club, GeoPaleo Club, Native American Student Association, Oklahoma Biotechnology Association, Photography Club, Psychology Sociology Club, Salam, Student Art Guild, Student Occupational Therapy Association, and Transitions. There are also chapters of Chi Alpha, Phi Theta Kappa, and Psi Beta.

Students interested in journalism can join the staff of the Pioneer, the student newspaper. Moreover, creative writing students can submit their work to OCCC’s literary journal, Absolute.

The Visual and Performing Arts Center opened in 2009. The 56,000-square foot facility was built as a place for study in such fields as music, photography, and the visual arts.

Student Enrollment Demographics


OCCC has an extensive intramurals program, with men’s leagues in flag football, kickball, bowling, basketball, and volleyball, as well as women’s leagues in kickball, bowling, basketball, flag football, and volleyball. Many of these leagues also have a co-ed format.
