How To Access Your Online Course

Distance Education courses allow students to take classes at their convenience from home or work. Students need access to a computer with internet browser software and an internet service provider account to access course material, to turn in assignments, and to communicate with the instructor and classmates. Distance learning students are expected to be familiar with computers and the internet. Scroll down for detailed registration and course login instructions.

Successful distance learning students actively participate in class on a regular basis just like a face-to-face class. Taking courses through distance education is not easier, but distance education allows more flexibility by reducing travel time and bringing the course to the student’s location. Computer access is available in the Learning Commons.

Academic advising is an important part of student success. You must schedule an advising appointment prior to registration for any courses.

Each term, OCCC offers Distance Education (DE) classes taught by OCCC instructors, and students register for these classes via their my OCCC account. Early registration is critical as online classes fill quickly.

Textbooks/Course Materials

Textbooks and/or course materials should be obtained from the provider institution’s bookstore. Check the schedule to ensure you know which college is providing the course you are registered for. Textbooks for all courses taught by Oregon Coast Community College Faculty may be purchased at the OCCC Bookstore (541-867-8523).
