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!

Online classes are very adaptable and easy to navigate. They use canvas as their website and it is super easy to understand and it was my favorite platform. Most classes can be done are your own speed, which is great!
Many people criticize community college, but I can say I really like this one. My experience has been great because I am gaining a lot of knowledge from my professors. Going here also allowed me to pick my schedule accordingly and helped me gain time management skills due to also working full time. Community college is very affordable and a great start because I got a better understanding of what I want my future to look and be like. I do wish we had more majors to choose from because most are very generic. I also wish textbooks were inexpensive, but this goes for any college or university.
