Congratulations on your recent acceptance! We are pleased you will be joining us. Please be watching your email for the Post-Acceptance Checklist. The Post-Acceptance Checklist contains all the instructions for what you should do next and all the links you need. Please follow the steps in order.
Please carefully read all information we send you as much of it is critical to your immigration status and your success at OCC.
We will send new initial students their acceptance letter and I-20 by regular postal mail or Express Shipping, as you choose. Transfer students receive their I-20's in the first few weeks of classes, unless they are travelling abroad before classes start.
If you want to use the E-ship Global
service for DHL or FedEx Express shipping, please create an account on their site. Your credit card will be charged for the shipping fees. You will need your OCC student ID number, mailing address, Email address and phone number and credit card information. This service allows students to receive their documents in 3-5 business days. If you experience any difficulties in registering and processing the shipment, please use the "HELP" link on their website or contact email@example.com
The report date in item 5 of your I-20 is the date you must arrive in the U.S. and report to our office by. If you do not get your visa in time to arrive by this date, please contact our office. Special authorization for later arrival requires a detailed written request explaining your situation and Director approval.
There are many ways you can familiarize yourself with the campus before you arrive:
Join our international center facebook page
and join the conversation in our facebook page forum
. There you can informally interact with our staff and other students.
Our dedicated International Center staff is here to assist you so that you have a smooth transition into academic and social life in the U.S. If you have any questions please contact us at OCCInternational@occ.cccd.edu
See you soon!
