Course Selection

Each spring, Oakland Tech counselors and administrators give presentations to all students to discuss the course options available to them the following school year, including the necessary prerequisites and the graduation and college requirements each class meets.

The course selection process for the 2021-22 school year required our normal in-person presentations to be replaced with Zoom meetings. Click the link below to access 2021-22 course selection forms and instructions along with presentation slides and videos of the Zoom events.

Please Note …

  • Oakland Tech has a student-driven master schedule and all staffing, class periods and course offerings are determined by your initial course requests. Therefore, there is little flexibility to change, add, or drop classes once initial course selections are submitted. We cannot guarantee space in classes not required for graduation. We will try to honor your requests, but some courses may not be available due to student demand.
  • Requests to change courses will be considered during the petition period on a case-by-case basis. After the initial petition period, changes may only be made with the approval of an administrator.
  • You may only select one course in each of the core subjects (Math, English, Science, History, World Language)
