What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
This school is terrible when it comes to financial need. No one here knows much able ways to attend on a financial need basis. They are very slow with processing financial applications.
Brittany from Detroit, MI
There is a large misconception among students that going to a community college looks bad to your friends and family, and you aren't as smart as others that go to major universities. Going to OCC is a great decision because of its large number of programs, courses, and courses that will transfer to other universities. Thanks to OCC I already have most of my gen. ed courses out of the way for the university I plan on attending next year.
Ian from Bloomfield Hills, MI
Oakland Community College is a great school with helpful, educated professors and overall staff. Oakland Community College is set up to help students reach the full potential and succeed in life. This college has changed me as a student; I enjoy going to class, I want to learn, and doing the homework assigned doesn't feel like a chore anymore.
