University description (as per official university website)

History of Odessa College

The past of Odessa College is interwoven with growth and progress. A review of its history reveals a success story of a public institution that has maintained the community college spirit and has grown by serving the people of Ector County and the Permian Basin. Beginning with 184 students in 1946, OC has grown steadily through the years. Approximately 5,000 students are enrolled in university-parallel and occupational/technical credit courses. During a year, almost 11,000 individuals also enroll in one or more Adult Basic Education, Continuing Education or Community Recreation courses.

Many university-parallel courses are offered for students planning to complete four-year degrees at senior colleges or universities and are freely transferable. Former OC students have a phenomenal record of success in the fields of accounting, law, medicine, music, public administration and teaching.

More than 30 occupational/technical programs also are offered, and additional ones are planned to meet the needs of citizens who want to learn new or improve existing skills. With more than 30 percent of our students enrolled in occupational/technical programs, OC continues to fulfill the workforce demands of our community.

Initially housed in temporary quarters in the old Odessa High School, OC's first classes were conducted after public school hours in late afternoons and evenings. Ector County taxpayers purchased a five-acre plot in the 2500 block of the Andrews Highway and in 1949 authorized the building of Baskin Hall, the first permanent structure.


Odessa College is a great way to begin a four-year degree. OC offers 44 credit hours of core courses that are equivalent to the core courses at universities. Depending on the major and the university in which you are interested, as many as 60 semester hours will transfer. Odessa College is also a great place to complete a certificate or two-year degree. OC offers Associate's Degrees in 48 areas of study and certificate options in 25 areas of study. If you haven't decided on your major, that's okay. You can start with the core courses while you are deciding.


The student enrollment at Odessa College was 4,580 in 2007 (2,446 full-time equivalent).
Undergrads are 100% of enrolled students.
Students living in the US make up 100% of incoming freshmen.
