Paying for College

OCCC believes in providing access to an affordable, quality education.  The tuition and fees at OCCC are very affordable--about half of what they are at an Oregon public university.  OCCC also offers many resources to help pay for college.  Students can do most of their college business online, which improves access and saves students time.

Tuition for residents is $121 per credit.  Most classes are 1 to 4 credits each.

Example budgets for tuition, fees, and books:

     half-time student (6 credits): about $950 per term
