Distance Education


OCCC offers Distance Education (DE) classes taught by OCCC instructors. Students register for these classes in their myOCCC account in the same way they register for all other classes. Early registration is critical as online classes fill quickly.

OCCC students also have the option to take online classes at Portland Community College. Students interested in this option should coordinate with an academic advisor who will facilitate registration with PCC. Students who register for classes at PCC must follow the dates and deadlines published in PCC's academic calendar and complete PCC's orientation for online courses.

The Oregon Coast Scholars Program will not pay tuition and fees for PCC Distance Education classes.  Tuition waivers will also not pay for PCC classes.
