Oregon Coast Community College’s learning environment is made more special by its small class sizes, its amazing award-winning faculty, and its student body. Did you know that 30% of OCCC students are aged 35 or above? The range of ages and experience in a typical OCCC class is broad and exciting, and the shared experiences and perspectives of the students add to a vibrant and engaging learning environment. If you’re considering returning to college or starting for the first time later than you’d planned, we’re here to help. Let’s get started!


Oregon Coast’s science programs are expanding. Depending on the term, you’ll find a robust lineup of biology, geology, chemistry, physics and more.
