    I'm almost 100% positive that OCC is the cheapest college in NJ (or at least in southern NJ). Although it's cheap it is one of the more recognized county colleges with a good reputation. It looks better than the other county colleges around and offers more. Like I said, MOST professors are amazing. I've been impressed with them and I've been a Penn State student. Most colleges will transfer 90% of your courses from OCC. They trust it there. I check with Penn State (they have this online transfer tool) before taking courses because then I know which ones will and will not transfer. The ones that don't transfer directly usually at least transfer towards Gen. Eds., and minors.
