    If you are unsure how you want to move forward after high school, but not ready to live away from home OCC is a terrific option. For students who don't have the financial resources for a 4year college or university, or may not have the qualifications to gain acceptance at a dream school, OCC is a way to prepare for your goals in a supportive, vibrant atmosphere. For career changes, or adults returning for additional education, the low tuition gives a huge value here.

    just like if you would go to any college don't think that it be similar to high school because it is not. the teachers have you work, so you can have a better education then high school. i would recommend picking some sort of associate degree program if you know what you want to go into and if you don't, then go for the liberal arts because it is very transferable.

    Do not simply rely on ratemyprofessor. While some reviews are definitely accurate, stop by the office of a professor you're interested in and ask for information on the course. If you like the professor after talking to them, and are interested in the course, than take it.

Go to college with a plan, whether it's to obtain a certificate or to finish gen-ed courses to transfer out, it will make the biggest difference in the world.
