Overall Experience: Overall, its a great school to go and get all your GE requirements before you transfer to a 4-year university. Professors are passionate and available. The Student Success Center does the absolute best at helping you get there.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Orange Coast College is a great community college. The campus is constantly improving to make your experience there better. The teachers are pretty good for the most part. The science classes are difficult but they are making sure you are well prepared.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, Orange Coast College is a comfortable school. The professors I've had so far have always been a pleasure to be around. I was lucky to have enthusiastic professors to help create an engaging environment for their students. The campus is relatively clean and it's welcoming.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: OCC is such a great college! There are many classes to choose from. And even though there are so many students, everyone still get the classes they want.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Best for saving money and thoughts on transferring

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's easy to navigate around campus at Orange Coast College, the people attending there are friendly and nice as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. The classes and professor have been fantastic.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Costs are very cheap for essentially the "same" education as the first two years at any college. Some classes are very impacted for some majors (Mine is Biology). Some students are toxic but for the most part there is a lot of good students to mingle with and get study groups going. Professors are hit or miss, just make sure to read ratemyprofessor or any other reviews and ask around. Overall my impression is that it's just okay, don't expect to be here for only two years though, myself and many others have been for at least 3 years. Make sure you stay on top of your game and make an education plan and work constantly with counselors to minimize time here.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Orange Coast College, the teachers are incredibly helpful and they truly care about you and how you do in the class! There is a huge variety of classes to choose from and the programs such as EOPS are a life saver!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is better than Orange Coast College. The professors are nice and don't make you feel like an idiot when you don't know something. I just wish there was even more variety in the clubs. I feel like tghe campus is missing clubs that I would be intrested in like a Fight and leadership club, or a film club for those who want

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love this school mostly because of the professors. They were all so helpful to me, and the majority of them has a great personality. They treat you like an adult, but they still want you to do your very best and will help you however they can.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's good if you get the classes you need; however, getting the classes you need is nearly impossible.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good professors and is very close to my home. The study labs are very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: General Ed classes can be rough, but once you get plugged in with a specific major or program, it gets so much better. Making friends is easier, professors start to really know you and care about you, and it's just fun (as long as you enjoy your major). Orange Coast College has been very good to me and I definitely recommend it above all other Orange County community colleges.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors on campus are the best! They truly care about teaching and there students. There are a few that don't meet this criteria, but they rarely stay long.

The only faults this school has is in it's lack of technology, ease of applying, and poor communication among the student body. You rarely know what's going on, on campus.

Their student portal needs a major overhaul: better UI, UX, and update of the back-end. It's just a very laggy and difficult portal to navigate.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: School has an amazing culinary program and has won many competitions. Their are so many classes and programs, this college has something for everyone. I am so glad that this is the school I choose to go to for baking and pastry, I am learning a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We have an awesome library that stays open til 12 during finals. A nice tutoring center, cafeteria, good sports complex, field, a lot of good resources for a community college!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Beautiful campus, accessible and clean and several of my friends from other colleges are impressed with the quality of the facilities. Everything is pretty chill here and so far no complaints.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The have many group programs we can join. The have a very nice library and student center. The school also tries to support the school activities. They even offer to study abroad we have other students from past years talk to us about it. The student success center is quite helpful, I tend to visit there everytime I have an essay. I ask them questions and for reassurance I am writing it accurately.

Campus Resources: Excellent instructors at OCC. Many are top of their field, or have taught at the University level before. I once had a professor tell me that he turned down teaching at a UC because he felt that OCC was, "The Harvard of community colleges." If you want to attend a top University, it is so much easier and less stressful to transfer from OCC first. You can also get really involved with student leadership on campus as well as the Honors Program. I don't give OCC 5 stars because their hot dog cart really bothers me...

Academic Flexibility: Not all of the classes are very flexible, but that depends on the class. If it's a more specialized subject, you are less likely to find a lot of flexibility.

Online Courses: I am personally not a fan of online courses because I prefer to be in class, but I did take one online course and I really enjoyed it. It was really easy to view the assignments and upload them to the computer.
