OCC New Admission Criteria
- 0Apr 17, '12 by rystleOnly five prereq classes now and the new test is math proficiency and reading comprehension with a 75% in only two attempts. There is also a fee for the test.
What do you think? Will there be any other additions? The repeated courses will lower the total score and transfer scores will lower total score.
I also took both english classes with Schoolcraft College and Microbiology, so I don't think I have a chance. What program would you recommend around Livonia/Novi/Walled Lake area? Schoolcraft has a 4 year wait list. I'm kind of frustrated. I've been looking at programs since I was 18 years old, not really serious about them now but now I'm ready to do something. I'm 23 and getting old now, lol. I'd like to get a career by 30.

I just got accepted into the program this year after doing all 11 classes! It was a pain but worth it! Good luck, and if you do end up doing the OCC program let me know I have some great teachers you can choose when picking your schedule!

It says transfer scores may lower the score. It doesn't say that they will, but what chance do you think I have if I obtain a 4.0 transfer score as opposed to all the classes at OCC? Would I get in eventually or it would be endless?
I already took the first three classes at Schoolcraft College. I obtained a 4.0 in the first three classes though my Microbiology class is from 2008 but with a 4.0 so I guess I may have to retake microbiology. OCC would not even let me into English Composition 1. I kept testing into Academic Literacy (ENG 1060) and I took it once and the teacher was so hard and wouldn't even pass me. This was like in 2007. It was horrible. Schoolcraft College I tested into College level English Composition 1 the first time and obtained a 4.0 the first time I took English Composition 1. Have no idea why it is so hard to get into it there, lol.
- 0Apr 21, '12 by KadambariQuote from Anne36Yes, you have it correct. The 5 prequisites courses are for admission into the RN program however the rest of the classes can be completed when you are admitted into the programCan someone clarify the new requirements for me, because Im confused. Am I correct in stating that you still need to complete the 11 pre-reqs but they are only basing your GPA off the 5?
Does anyone know why the admission policy was changed?
