Science, Engineering & Mathematics Advising

The advising process at Olympic College is designed to offer guidance to help students enroll in classes, make career choices, select from program options and transfer from OC to a 4-year university. The Quick Start Guides linked below provide step-by-step directions on how to get started or continue with classes at OC.
