What we offer


Our most commonly requested presentation is our "Why OCC?" presentation where we go over why Orange Coast College is right for you. The presentation features everything from our one-of-a-kind facilities to our unique and diverse offering of classes. We also have a "Why Community College?" presentation that helps students understand the benefits of attending a community college.


Currently, we offer application workshops. These workshops involve our team coming to your classroom or event and guiding prospective students through the application process, step-by-step. This is a highly requested service as it allows us to troubleshoot application issues as they occur.


We also offer tabling, where we come to your school or location and set up a table with information and resources about our college. This allows prospective students to drop at their convenience to learn about our school and get their questions answered.

Book us for one of these services by emailing occoutreach@occ.cccd.edu.
