Welcome to Orange Coast College


​Umoja is a state-wide student success program open to all students and is specifically designed to increase the retention and success rates of African-American students. The Umoja Program is a Learning Community that offers student success classes, English, Math, and History classes which strives to educate the whole student, informed by an ethic of love and its vital power. Academic success is also achieved through educational counseling, workshops, cultural events, mentoring, and personal development.
