1. I am interested in majoring in a particular field at Odessa College. Where can I find information about my major?

From the OC homepage, click on Departments Directory. Find your major from the alphabetical listing. We are continually adding to and upgrading our website so if the information that you want is not available, request an Odessa College catalog or call 432-335-6400 and speak to the department directly.

2. What is the application deadline?

We do not have a set deadline for the application for admission. If you need financial aid, apply about 3 months before the semester in which you plan to start. This insures that your award will be ready when you start. You will need to complete the application for admission and request the needed transcripts before Student Financial Services can make the award.

3. I have applied for Financial Aid, turned in the Admissions Application and requested the necessary transcripts to be sent to Odessa College, now what?

Take the TASP or Compass test, if required, at least 3 weeks before you plan to register. To talk to a counselor and register early, sign up for OC Experience by calling Student Activities at 432-335-6403. OC Experience dates are usually not set and published until a couple of months before regular registration. OC Experience is for new students only.

If you can't attend an OC Experience, you can schedule an appointment with a counselor as soon as you get your test scores. After being advised, come back on one of the registration dates listed in the front of the catalog or schedule. After registration, take your class schedule to the bookstore and buy your books.

4. How much can I expect to pay for tuition?

Cost depends on your residency and the classes that you take. Look in the catalog or schedule under Financial Information. The tuition and fees are listed by semester hour. The second digit of the course number of any class that you plan to take tells you how many semester hours the class is worth. For example, if you take English 1301, the 3 in the course number tells you that the class is worth three semester hours. Add up the second digits of all the course numbers of the classes that you plan to take and look on the chart pertaining to your residency. Full time is 12 semester hours or more.

5. I have attended Odessa College in the past, how can I get a transcript of the classes that I took?

The Registrar's Office is responsible for printing transcripts. Transcripts must be picked up by the student with a picture ID or mailed by written request. Fax a written request to 432-335-6303 or mail the request to: Odessa College Registrar, 201 W. University, Odessa, TX 79764.

Be sure to include your name, Social Security Number, where to mail it, a telephone number where you can be reached and your signature. Students who attended since Fall 2001 were charged a fee at registration that covers the release of official transcripts. If you last attended before Fall 2001, enclose a check for $3 or call the Cashier's Office at 432-335-6419 with your credit card number.
