Browse by Dual Admission
Dual or Joint Admission agreements are where you apply for admission to both schools as a Freshman and complete the first two years of your coursework at OCC. Then you carry on at the 4-year school as a Junior with guaranteed acceptance and full credit transfer.
Dual admission agreements are for full-time students planning to pursue a bachelor's degree, who have already chosen both a major and a specific transfer school. Applicants must have strong academic records, including Regent's English, Social Studies, Science and Math. Students who transfer credits from another institution are not eligible for any of our dual admission agreements. Upon successful completion of the OCC degree, having met all conditions of the dual admission agreement, students are guaranteed acceptance at the 4-year college.
