Post Acceptance Checklist Transfer Summer 2016
Buy the mandatory International Student Health Insurance (This will become available approximately in April). Use the pull down menu to choose Orange Coast College and the year then “Enroll Online”.  This insurance is mandatory except for certain sponsored students who can provide a financial guarantee from the cultural mission of his or her country.   Report to the OCC International Center as soon as possible and certainly before May 30, 2016 (Map). We will make your placement test, counseling and orientation appointments. We are located on the fourth floor of Watson Hall near parking Lot A. Our office hours are Monday-Thursday 9:00 am-4:00 pm; Friday 9:00 am-2:00 pm. If you are out of state, please contact us to make arrangements. Register for classes as soon as registration begins (Summer enrollment should become available in April) using the included MyOCC login information you have received by email.  Refer to the MyOCC reference guide and the first semester Course Selection Guide.  You should pay for your classes at the time of enrollment to avoid being dropped from classes. If you cannot pay for some unusual reason, please contact us for help. You will not be able to register for any math or English/ESL courses until you complete the math/English placement tests.    It is wise to enroll ASAP as all F-1 New students must enroll in, and complete 6 units in the summer semester to maintain their immigration status.  Waitlisted classes do not count as enrollment.  Check your MYOCC email twice a day for waitlist notifications!  See the Waitlist FAQ for more info.   You must continue to attend classes at your current school until the session ends to maintain your immigration status.   Submit a copy of your OCC acceptance letter to your current school and ask them to transfer your SEVIS record to OCC when the session ends. Your SEVIS record must be transferred to OCC within the 60 day grace period (counted from the last day you attend your old school). Please do not delay.   You must attend the Mandatory Orientation on June 7, 2016 at 8:30 am If you wish to travel outside the U.S. before classes begin at OCC, submit a travel form. You will need to use OCC’s I-20 to re-enter the U.S.  If you are not traveling, I-20’s are issued after classes begin. This is not a problem as long as your SEVIS record is transferred to OCC within the grace period.  Do not make travel plans between January 19th and the start of school.  You need to be in the area to get ready to start at OCC. If you are travelling and are already outside the U.S. We will need to send you the OCC I-20 so you can enter the U.S.  You will need to return to the USA, report to OCC  no later than the program start date listed on your I-20 (May 30, 2016) and you must remain in the local area until classes begin. Please select a shipping method:  a.) If you want to receive your I-20 and acceptance letter by an Express mail shipping service with a tracking number, please create an account and pay at E-Ship Global. With this service you will receive your documents within 3-5 business days. b.) If you want us to send your documents by regular postal mail delivery with no tracking please email us at with regular shipping in the subject line. Reserve your hotel (if needed) and obtain housing.  Housing information is on our housing and homestay webpage We will call you when your I-20 Is ready to pick up.  Usually within the first few weeks of classes. You can help by making sure your old school has a copy of your OCC acceptance letter and all the documents they require for your request for transfer.  OCC’s SEVIS code is: LOS 214F 0118 6000.  We are listed in SEVIS under Coast Community College District and then as Orange Coast College.
