Office Administration Center

The Office Administration Center (OAC) is located in Founders Hall 131. This center runs all Open-entry/Open-exit OFADM courses. “Open-entry/Open-exit” means students may add a course well into the semester, and the course is complete once all the requirements have been met.

Our center is unique at MJC, as it is ran as a closed-lab classroom with a professor available throughout open hours. The OAC Professor allows students to choose the hours during the week that are most convenient for them, DAY or EVENING. The professor will work with students to create an individualized plan for course completion.

Group OAC Orientations are given for the Open-entry/Open-exit OFADM courses at the beginning of each semester. For more information regarding the OAC courses and orientations, please go to the Office Administration Center webpage.
