    OCC is good if you want to take core classes and save some money, HOWEVER, don't take anything real specific. For example Marine Biology, environmental science, 300-level courses. They might not transfer to your next school whereas, english 1&2 (basic courses) most likely will.

    Just go to class and you will be fine. And don't eat from the cafeteria; food is gross!

    If you plan on transferring to a four year school, Ocean County College is for you. It is a perfect way to save some money and cut back on the student loans you will later have to pay. If you want to succeed at OCC, make sure you get to know your professors and do all the work they assign - and you are sure to do well at this remarkable school!

    The most important tip I have for prospective students is to dive into extracurricular activities. With so many teams, classes and clubs, Ocean County College is bound to have a spot for you on their campus.

    Going here is worth it, it's easy if you let it be and saves tons of money. You can always transfer later and while you're working towards a degree for a different school try getting an associate's degree or certificate in something else. Certain things always come in handy. For example, a business certificate can raise your pay working in sales or retail management through college. Don't take Psychology with Professor Leonard. She may have credentials, but she doesn't make any sense and, coming from a Psychology background in my family, I can tell you it is all mis-information. An easy grade, but not worth poisoning your mind. lol. Most professors are great. My investments prof. used to be stock broker. Look into classes off the main campus, sometimes they have more to offer when it comes to hands on classes. Use rate my professor when picking classes and if you have a busy life try scheduling all your classes for the week into one or two days. Get it all done in one shot. If you take one long class rather than two short ones for a course you'll probably finish in the same amount of time as the short classes because there's less moving around. Try to buy books from friends, most books are only available from the college bookstore and they can be expensive. OCC likes to rip you off that way. Look online at other sites and ask friends for cheap buys. That being said go to your first class and make sure you even need the books before buying them. If you're planning to transfer to a 4-years and if think you can learn from the particular professor take your harder classes at OCC (after checking they will transfer) and it'll be easier than taking them at a 4-year. Then 4-yr college will be a breeze and you'll have time to have a blast.
