The student body at my school is very eclectic. Ages of students can range from 17-50. My school offers a &quot;jump-start&quot; program, where high school students can take college classes while still in high school. Some students on campus are coming back to school from already having degrees and making a career change. People that have already had a career, gotten married and made their families, now their children have grown up and they've decided that they want to do something more meaningful with their lives, they come back to Ocean County College. I love the different variety of people our school brings to our campus!

Questionable Education for the Price – OCC seems to pride its self on providing the cheapest product/experience possible. Staff is unknowledgeable in many of the departments. Financial Aid seems to work on a whim. One semester they have it together, are quick and helpful, and know what they are doing. The next semester no one knows whats happening, they continually contradict themselves, and seem non-existent. The staff seems as if they have given up hope! Many of the teachers are adjuncts without supervision and have no experience intellectually or physically in their subject or have experience but participate very little in their class. Staff openly complains about the campus and administration. I chose OCC because they were cost effective and close but I worry I will be unprepared when transferring to a four year college or that I am missing out on key help.

Financial Aid opportunities at OCC are great. They participate in the STARS program, which allows students who graduate in the top 15% of their class attend, while financial aid covers their tuition completely. As a STARS student, the only expenses I had to put out was for the fees and my books. On the scheme of things, this is nothing! I personally did not qualify for any state financial aid, but I have heard others who had no difficulty in receieving their financial aid. The only requirement, like any other school, is to fill out the FASFA. I also found that should you have any questions, there is always a representative in the Financial Aid office to help you out.
