READ THIS TASK IN DETAIL - ASSESSMENT SCREENSHOTS AND OCC ID NUMBER NEED TO BE EMAILED AT THE END
The remaining steps for completing the OCC application process are required for all new OCC students, whether they are early college students or high school graduates. The purpose of these steps is to get the student set up in the OCC email systems, get familiar with OCC’s services and supports, and guide them through mandatory English placement. Note: many of the instructions on the OCC site are meant for traditional OCC students and do not apply to early college students. For example, Oakland Technical Early College applicants should not make an OCC counseling appointment until directed to by OTEC program staff, should not take the math placement test, should not complete a FAFSA form or seek other financial aid, should not attempt to register for OCC classes, and should not buy textbooks.
Revisit the OCC Dual Enrollment Page site and complete:
Step 3: Set Up a MyOCC Account & OCC Email. Once the applicant receives an email message from OCC containing their OCC student number, they can proceed to this step. Applicants set up an Admissions Profile in an earlier step using a personal email account. From this step forward, OCC will only communicate with students through an assigned OCC email account. Follow OCC Step 4 instructions for setting up the account. Be sure to make a note of the password that you choose.
Step 4: New Student Orientation – Online. Log into your MyOCC account and select Pre-Registration Steps, then New Student Orientation. Sign in using your MyOCC username and password and click on New Student Orientation/Title IX. Work your way through all the lessons. When finished, including the brief Student Survey, be sure to click “Mark Course Completed.” Failure to do so will prevent you from moving on to the next step.
Step 5: Mandatory English Placement and Sending Screenshots (Students do NOT need to take the Aleks Math Placement). One of the final requirements to determine eligibility for enrollment into the OTEC program is a demonstration of readiness for college-level reading and writing. The only course recommendation that will qualify a student for enrollment in the OTEC program is English 1510, Composition I. Upon completion of the self-placement module, the system will provide an English course recommendation.
- Log into MyOCC, select Pre-Registration Steps, select English Placement“
- Sign in using your MyOCC username and password.
- Click on the English Placement Module. Plan on taking about about 30 minutes to complete.
Assessment Screenshots and Needed
- After Assessment 2 and 3 in the module, the system will provide an English course recommendation. If the recommendation is for English 1510 Composition I, take a screenshot after each assessment and save it.
- Be sure to complete the placement module and “Mark Course Completed” at the end.
Important: After assessment 2, which is 4 questions to complete, save a screenshot of the English course recommendation. After assessment 3, which is 10 questions to complete, save a screenshot.
Send the two screenshots (1 after assessments 2 and 1 after assessment 3 in the module) to
email@example.com with your name and OCC Student ID number.
