Credit Students:  To be considered for graduation, a student must fill out the Oregon Coast Community College graduation application located in their My.OregonCoast account.  This must be completed and a student must work with their academic advisor to submit an academic planner to the OCCC registrar that lists all courses required to complete a student’s degree or certificate.  This must be done at least one term in advance of degree or certificate completion.  A student who participates in the ceremony will receive an empty diploma cover at the ceremony.  A student is expected to monitor both their OCCC and PCC email accounts for information about graduation/commencement including how to order their diploma.

GED Students:  Persons who have completed their GED and used OCCC’s testing center or been a student in GED preparation classes at OCCC are eligible to participate in OCCC’s commencement ceremony.  Please contact Basic Skills for more information.

ESL Students:  ESL students may participate in OCCC’s commencement ceremony.  Please contact Basic Skills for more information.


Let the celebration commence!

The faculty and staff of Oregon Coast Community College have been awed by the resilience and spirit shown by OCCC students during this difficult and different Spring Term.

For those graduating in June, as you might imagine, Commencement will be different than any in the history of our College. We’d like to thank those students who participated in the student survey that sought ideas and opinions about how OCCC should celebrate this year’s event.
