Summer Session

How to Apply and Register for Summer Sessions

Fill out Oakton's general application form to begin applying for summer session courses. Be sure to select "Visiting Student" if you only plan to enroll in the summer term. If you've taken a class with us in the last three years, you don't need to apply again, and you can skip to Step 3—registering for classes. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Admission.

Submit Transcripts

Official transcripts (high school, college, AP, military) are required for students seeking an Oakton degree. Copies can be submitted:

  • Electronically (if your current school uses Parchment).
  • Via USPS mail.

Submit Proof of Residency

New students need to complete the one-hour online orientation. Visit your New Student Portal and select "Next Steps" to get started.

Note: You must complete your online orientation before you register for classes.

Register online. You will need your Oakton username and password to access your myOakton account.

Course Prerequisite Requirements

Some courses have prerequisites that will block registration.


Placement isn't required if you plan to:
  • Enroll in a math or English course or enroll in a course that has a math or English prerequisite.
  • Continue at Oakton to earn a degree.

Note: Placement in these areas is NOT required if you are only taking a class and/or the class does not have a Math or English prerequisite requirement.
