Modesto Junior College

Office Administration Center

The Office Administration Center (OAC), in Founders Hall 131, offers open-entry/open-exit Office Administration courses in an individualized, hands-on format. The short, carefully prepared units of instruction allow for flexible scheduling and ongoing enrollment well into the semester. Your hours may vary from day to day and you may be scheduled for more than one hour per day. Therefore, each course can be completed as rapidly as your capabilities and/or commitments allow.

Orientation Information

The first week of each semester is set aside for orientations. All new and returning students enrolled in OFADM open-entry/open-exit courses need to attend one of our 90-minute, course-specific orientations in Founders Hall 131.   Orientations are informative sessions designed to provide students with information helpful to the successful completion of their courses in the Office Administration Center. They also give students a chance to ask any questions they may have about taking courses in the Center. 

Textbooks and Supplies

You will need to purchase the appropriate textbook before starting a course in the OAC. If purchased before class begins, do not remove the shrink-wrap until after attending your orientation. You may be required to purchase a Scantron for testing and a flash drive.

All your supplies may be purchased at the MJC bookstore located in the student center on East Campus.  A textbook/supply list will be given to you during your orientation. It is not necessary to purchase anything before the orientation.
