OCCC Announces Student Honors for Winter Term 2022

Winter 2022 brought a return to in-person classes for many students at OCCC, who continue to exhibit incredible resiliency during the pandemic. In addition to adjusting to online learning – and, in many cases, the return to in-person instruction – balancing college classes can be challenging for students who work full time or who work multiple jobs, and for those who are parents at a time when the paucity of childcare resources is extreme.

In the midst of all this, Oregon Coast Community College students have shown grit and determination in pursuit of their studies. College staff and faculty congratulate all our students for their perseverance, and today we salute those students recognized as recipients of the College’s Honor Roll, Dean’s List, and President’s List for Winter 2022.

To be eligible, students must have completed a minimum of six graded credits during the term, and have met the GPA requirements for the given level of honors.

Oregon Coast’s Summer 2022 term begins on June 27. Many students start their academic journeys in the summer term – wrapping up one or two prerequisite courses for their planned degree program, or simply taking courses that are of particular interest.

Prospective students, and their friends and family, can learn about classes, meet with student success coaches, get information about financial aid, and take campus tours during the upcoming spring College & Career Nights, held at the Central County Campus in Newport, April 26 and May 19, and at the North County Center in Lincoln City, May 24. All events are held from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Students interested in exploring the many offerings at Oregon Coast Community College are encouraged to apply (there is no obligation to attend after applying) and meet with a student success coach to discuss the programs and subjects offered, and how they fit with each student’s own academic and career aspirations.
