Step 1: Application

Students who have missed one or more semesters are required to reapply for admissions through OpenCCCApply. If you have an account with OpenCCCApply, log in and complete an application for the term that you are intending to take the class in. If you do not have an OpenCCCApply account, the first step is to create an account; second step is to complete an application for admissions for the term that you are intending to take classes in. Summer and Fall applications open in February and Spring applications open in early October. To find the exact date that applications open, please check our Important Dates Calendar out. 

*Please make sure that you apply with your legal name, and review your application before submitting it. It is very important to read each question in the application correctly. Any discrepancies may cause a delay in your application being processed. If you have legally changed your name, please contact admissions@ohlone.edu and complete a Change of Student Information form and a copy of your California Driver's License/State Issued ID and Social Security Card or legal document (i.e. marriage certificate/divorce decree/court document) to confirm your name change. Please take care of this before reapplying for admissions. to ensure there are no delays in your application being processed.

Step 2: Scholarship & Aid

Apply for FAFSA by the March 2nd deadline for the upcoming award year for priority funding. Please keep in mind that some Federal and State aid is first-come, first-serve, and failure to complete the necessary documentation in a timely manner could result in limited Financial assistance.
