OCC encourages everyone to participate and connect with the people and content on its social media platforms. To protect OCC's users and community, social media websites(*sites) managed and sanctioned by OCC will be moderated. The official social media sites for Orange Coast College, and all OCC-sanctioned social media sites, are not open forums. The purpose of these sites is to discuss matters related to the College, as identified and raised by the College or the College's department and programs. We encourage the public to submit comments that are on topic, but please address those comments to the specific topic(s) discussed.

Inappropriate, criminal, abusive, SPAM and discriminatory behavior will not be tolerated. Content that expresses hate, profanity and personal attacks also will not be allowed. Users who use curse words, racist words, abusive language, or language that promotes violence will be blocked. We may, but have no obligation to, remove, hide, block, report, and/or monitor content or accounts posting on the OCC social media accounts that we determine, at our sole discretion, violates our posting guidelines.

OCC's official social media sites and sanctioned sites are forums that are limited to the specific topics identified and raised by the individuals who manage each site(s). Users who submit content to these sites agree they have read, understand, and agree to the following terms and conditions under such use.


Social media and blogging accounts will adhere to both state and federal law including those that pertain to harassment and criminal threats. Violators will be suspended from all OCC social media and blogging activity until further notice and may be reported to local police.

The following laws pertain to social media usage at Orange Coast College:

Additionally, all activity on official OCC social media pages and OCC-sanctioned social pages will be subject to the College's Student Code of Conduct. OCC students who violate the Student Code of Conduct on social media will be referred to the Dean of Students' Office.


The views and opinions expressed on OCC-sanctioned social media platforms are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of OCC, its leadership, its Board of Trustees, or any of its employees.


We welcome constructive criticism about ways we can improve and will respond accordingly.
