Oregon Coast Community College secured independent accreditation in February 2020. This marks a watershed moment in the 33-year history of the school. As an independent institution, OCCC will be managing its own financial aid, streamlining this important process for students. Prior to this coming academic year, every OCCC student seeking financial aid had to do so through other accredited institutions via additional steps.
But wait – there’s more! The College is in the midst of moving to a new enrollment and registration system. The system is being finalized at this time, as OCCC and four other Oregon Community Colleges prepare to launch the program. This new, more modern platform will provide students with a friendlier, easier, more robust system that will eventually allow easy access to registration, financial aid, graduation planning, and more. The new system will replace the “SharkNet” registration system students currently access via “myoccc.”
As a newly accredited independent community college, all new and continuing students must complete a new application for admission before registering for Fall Term classes.
If you have already completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you’ll need to update the form with OCCC’s new Financial Aid number.
Effective now, all current and prospective OCCC students completing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should use OCCC’s new code, 042837.
As noted above, OCCC is receiving a new Financial Aid school code due to its recently having secured independent accreditation.
