Below are some helpful dates to keep in mind during each semester. Deadlines for refunds, registration, and withdrawals are different for each course. For specific deadlines, please refer to your Student Class Program (Web Schedule Bill PDF) or contact the Answer Center at (714) 432-5072 during business hours for specific course information. Students are responsible for verifying that their request has been received and processed in order to avoid grade/fee penalties.

Students who never attend a class or stop attending a class at any time, MUST officially withdraw themselves by the stated deadlines to avoid grade/fee penalties. Students may drop classes using MyCoast portal, by mail (postmarked by the US Postmaster by stated deadline), or by coming in-person to the Enrollment Center (during normal business hours), or emailing the Enrollment Center at arinfo@occ.cccd.edu. Please refer to the Dropping Classes for information on dropping classes.

NOTE: MyCoast portal is available every day, however, the system is down each day from 2:00 AM to 5:00 AM for maintenance.
