Event Honors Students Who Commit to an OCC Technical or Public Safety Program for Fall 2023 Semester

OCC is inviting area high school seniors to participate in a National Signing Day Thursday, April 20 and sign a “Letter of Intent” to pursue a degree or certificate in one of the College’s technical or public service programs beginning the Fall 2023 semester.

“This event is designed to celebrate students who plan to prepare for a technical or public safety career, and it emphasizes OCC’s commitment to help students gain the skills necessary to compete in these high demand occupations, “said Joseph Petrosky, associate provost of academics and workforce.

OCC’s National Signing Day event will be held from 10:00 a.m. until noon on Thursday, April 20, 2023, on OCC’s Auburn Hills campus.

At the event, students will:
