Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the OCC campus is open with a limited weekly schedule. The academic counselors and the F-1 advisors are available to help you online and in-person. Schedule an appointment or chat with us during our Drop-in hours.

    you will transfer out for Fall semester you do not need to extend I-20).
