Classes take place throughout the fall term, September through December, and are held at locations throughout Lincoln County. Our instructors are passionate about the subjects they teach, and they are your neighbors, folks who live in our community and are excited to share their areas of expertise and interest with others.

The College is excited to announce expanded offerings at its South County Center in Waldport this term - including Literary Portrait Making, Japanese Brush Painting, Oil Painting, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Photography, Zen Meditation, Mah Jongg, Before End of Life, and TikTok for Your Business.

Small business courses on offer this Fall include sessions on topics such as: Starting a Business in Lincoln County, the Basics of Excel and QuickBooks, Federal Contracting, marketing courses, and more.

OCCC’s Small Business Development Center is also offering extended courses for local businesses with its Childcare Business Accelerator (at no cost to attendees – learn more on the OCCC website), the Small Business Management Program, and Restaurant Small Business Management Program (also available with countywide scholarships thanks to Northwest Oregon Works and the City of Lincoln City). Interested parties should inquire by contacting Gregory Price, SBDC Director, at

“The Small Business Management Program, and its innovative and specialized new cousin, the Restaurant SBM, have both been reimagined and updated from the ground up this year,” said Dave Price, OCCC’s VP of Engagement (and a 2010 SBM Program graduate).
