The pandemic introduced students and families to a variety of learning environments. Many students desire flexible learning opportunities like Early College. Spending time at their home high school and OCC's campus creates flexibility in a students day that fits many learning styles.
OCC's Campuses are safe, moderately sized, updated and great environments for students to begin their college experience. Libraries, community collaboration spaces and other amenities provide students additional learning environments from which to choose.
OCC houses three Michigan Early College Programs. They are excellent partners in providing resources for our students. OCC's Associate Dean of College Readiness and Secondary School Partnerships dedicates energy and time into ensuring Early College student success.
OCC college professors have experience working with our younger aged learners and have proved excellent partners.
OCC's Academic Support Centers are important resources for our students. Students who participate in free tutoring at ASCs find the support highly useful.
