Ocean County College Reviews
My experience so far with Ocean County College has been nothing less than great. There are many resources which make getting by easier- especially for first time students. For example, the advisers do their best to lead you in the right direction while providing their feedback on what they feel would benefit you the most. The registration process is very simple but if there is ever difficulty, the Registration & Records are just an email or phone call away. The financial office is great as well. They do their best to keep track of the students finances & offer great options in regards to payment plans. The professors are phenomenal as well. My brother is considered special needs and the school did whatever they could in their power to provide the extra help that he needs. All in all, if you need a college to attend within proximity I highly recommend this school!
Ocean County College allows residents in the Ocean County area to further their education by offering a wide variety of majors and areas to study. The quality of academics is more than satisfactory in addition to the Low-cost tuition. There is a diverse student body at OCC with students coming from all areas of Ocean County. Most of the buildings and Infrastructure at OCC are updated with new technology and facilities. Some of the buildings on campus are being reopened due to construction and remodeling. The return on investment is one of the best in the college market. The three areas that could be improved at OCC is the cost of food, food quality, and cost of textbooks.
This school was very clean and welcoming, staff/professors were excellent and hands on to all student need. Recommend joining clubs make great friends and great of your resume. Food was so great and they really listen to what the students want to make their college experience great!
