Students enjoy an added 13th year as a full-time student at OCC, completing their high school diploma and potentially earning an associate degree.
Students attend class one time per week with Oakland ACE staff on OCC's campuses. Students learn college success skills and receive personalized support from our Early College Success Coordinator.

Oakland Community College
Oakland ACE program partners with Oakland Community College (OCC) to bring Early College opportunities to our students.
Each OCC campus dedicates an OCC counselor who is available to work with our students. OCC's Academic Support Centers are important resources for our students. Students who participate in free tutoring at ASCs find the support highly useful.
