An Oxy education is an investment, and it’s a valuable one.
2015-2016 costs for attending Occidental College:
|Room & Board||$13,946|
In awarding financial aid, Occidental also considers indirect costs of $1,244 for books and supplies, $1,002 for local transportation, and $1,606 for personal and miscellaneous expenses.
All enrolled students must also have health insurance in order to enroll at Oxy. While many students are covered under a parent’s policy and others have their own insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), those who don’t (or whose policies do not meet minimum standards) are required to purchase insurance through the Occidental Student Health Insurance Program (OSHIP). For 2014-2015 the premium of this insurance was $1,726. The insurance premium cost for 2015-2016 has yet to be determined. While limited grants are available through the Financial Aid Office, they are only awarded to students who have exhausted all other cost-effective options.
Don’t let sticker shock stop you from considering Oxy. We offer merit scholarships* and comprehensive need-based financial aid packages to qualified first-years and transfers. Though aid is limited for international students, some scholarships are available for those who demonstrate need and exceptional merit.
If you are a prospective first-year student, we encourage you to use our Net Price Calculator to see what your financial aid award may be if you attend Oxy.
