OCCC Success Coaches


Every college and university has its own method of supporting students with academic advising and coaching. Begun in 2022, OCCC has completely redesigned its process to better support you, our students. Our model, dubbed the “Oregon Coast Approach,” provides students with personalized service from the very start, through their academic career at OCCC. The Coach that meets the student at an assembly in high school, for example, is the same Coach who helps them apply and register for their first term and, later, helps them plan for their next steps.

From the moment you begin your academic career at Oregon Coast Community College, you will begin working with one of our four Student Success Coaches, and they are devoted to supporting you throughout your time at OCCC.
