Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Chegg your college books. Buy used from other students. Never buy a book new unless you need online access.
Kimberly from Toms River, NJ
Ocean County College is truly the ultimate bang for your buck. It is one of the most successful two-year colleges in the New Jersey. I'm saving over 50,000 dollars by choosing OCC; this is debt I won't have to dig myself out of when I'm out of school and in the real world.
Tara from Lanoka Harbor, NJ
I'd say any college is expensive but with that in mind, OCC definitely is a bang for your buck considering you certainly get what you pay for above and beyond.
