- With a student enrollment of 75,000, we are the largest community college in Michigan and the 14th largest in the United States. Our five campuses are located at strategic points throughout Oakland County: Auburn Hills, Farmington Hills, Waterford, Royal Oak and Southfield. OCC offers degrees and certificates in more than 125 career fields, as well as university transfer degrees in business, science and the liberal arts. The Oakland Community College District was established by the electorate of Oakland County, Michigan, on June 8, 1964. The area served encompasses almost 900 square miles and has an assessed valuation of over $25 billion. The College opened in September 1965, with a record community college initial enrollment of 3,860 students on two campuses - Highland Lakes, a renovated hospital in Union Lake, and Auburn Hills, a former Army Nike missile site in Auburn Heights. Occupying a nine-acre site on Opdyke Road in Bloomfield Hills, the George A. Bee Administration Center, also known as the District Office, serves as the administrative center for the College. Collegewide administrative support and operational services are housed here to help the College operate more efficiently. Its central location offers another convenient point in the County for the provision of student and community services. OCC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
