OCC graduates?

  1. Hi,

    I'm considering transferring from Washtenaw C.C over to Oakland C.C so that I can actually get into the nursing program soon and I hear O.C.C. does not have a waitlist. Soooo, did anyone out there graduate from Oakland? If so, how was the program? Thanks!!!

    I'm not so sure about that! I graduate from OCC nursing program in May and the last I heard they are behind a year and a half waiting list. I started in 05' and it took a year to get in. But ,as far as, the program was not easy and you must dedicate your time in your studies, probably like any other schools program. I like it and I feel that they are very organized and structured as far as their teaching process.

    Good Luck to you and hope you do well!

    OCC is changing their admittance policy starting with the Fall 2008 start date. For students applying for Fall 2008, there will not be a wait list, admittance will be based soley on pre-req GPA.

    I am just confirming... Starting in 2008, they will be admitting based upon pre-req GPA, however, they are still going to admit based on the initial system. Priority I, priority one is the date in which you completed the pre- requisites for the nursing program. Once they get a group under that, they will go by the GPA of those classes. There is not a wait LIST, never really has been, but they are just trying to narrow down the chances of getting in. Most likely as long as you have a 3.0 and up, you should wait approximately a year to get into OCC.
    Anyone else disagree? Or have a different experience?
    Let me know, thanks!

    This is not correct. For fall 2008 they are going on GPA first as long as you have completed the pre-req's. They will only use the date of pre-req completion in the event of a tie. The current program outline that explains this is available on the website.
