Successful transfer from OCC requires planning.

The Academic Advising staff can help you:

Students interested in transferring should meet with an advisor early in their career with OCC. For more information, view a tutorial on how to use NJ Transfer.

OCC - FDU Scholars Program

Ocean County College and Fairleigh Dickinson University have established the OCC-FDU Scholars Program.

Students are eligible to receive a 40% reduction in tuition at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck or Florham in Madison upon completion of the associate degree. Members of Phi Theta Kappa will receive an $18,000 annual scholarship, the value of which is greater than the 40% tuition reduction.

Combination Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs are available to transfer students and the tuition reduction can be extended into the graduate year (unless a more favorable tuition is available for graduate study).

New Jersey - Transfer Law

New Jersey has a state-wide agreement to assist students with transfer from a community college to a 4-year public institution. Under the Lampitt Law, community college students who complete an AA or AS degree will receive half of the credits needed for graduation with a Bachelor’s degree. Careful planning is essential for a smooth and efficient transfer experience.
