Welcome to Oakton. A few quick steps to get started . . . and you'll be on your way.
Our tuition and fees are remarkably competitive. The College offers an optional payment plan in addition to several forms of financial assistance, including grants, loans, and scholarships. To apply for financial assistance, start at fafsa.ed.gov.
Official transcripts are required ONLY for students seeking an Oakton degree.
To register for a course with a prerequisite that you have met at another college or university, you must submit proof in the form of an official or unofficial transcript or a grade report to the Enrollment Center (Room 1260, Des Plaines or Room A100, Skokie).
Take the assessment tests, if applicable.
Students who plan to enroll in a math or English course must take an assessment test or provide transcripts (or appropriate ACT scores) demonstrating successful completion of classes at another college or university. The assessment tests help the College place students in the appropriate class level.
Recent high school graduates will receive a letter assigning you a date to attend your Orientation and Registration program. At this time, you will meet with an advisor, plan your schedule and register for classes. These events begin in mid-June.
Adult students should review the Adult Student Information Presentation to answer basic questions about getting started. After reviewing this information, make an appointment with an academic advisor. The advisor will help you develop your course schedule and answer any questions you may have.
