Steps to Getting Started at COCC

All new students (including transfer or those returning after a one-year or more absence) are required to complete a COCC application. All NEW students (those who have NEVER taken credit classes at COCC) must submit a $25 non-refundable application fee at the time of application. Applications will not be processed without the fee. The application fee can be paid online at the end of the online application, by phone at 541-383-7229, in person at Enrollment Services at any COCC campus, or via your Bobcat Web Account.
The application DEADLINE is 5pm, the Wednesday prior to the beginning of the term.

Transfer Students: Please see detailed transfer information.
2. Placement Information
Once admitted, students provide placement information, a requirement for all students taking credit classes. See Placement Information Options.
Students with documented disabilities needing accommodation for testing should contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities prior to scheduling the placement tests.
After students are admitted and have provided placement information, advising is the next step.
