Oxy is sensitive and responsive to our students’ varying needs and circumstances. We extend financial aid through merit scholarships, need-based grants & scholarships, work-study, and student loans. Our aid programs often make Oxy’s costs comparable to those of public institutions.
Applying for financial aid can be complicated, but we're here to help. You can get started by familiarizing yourself with how financial aid works. The application requirements for first-year students are different from those for transfers, international students, and returning/current students.
If you are interested in Oxy, we encourage you to apply for financial aid—regardless of your financial circumstances. We also encourage you to use our Net Price Calculator for an idea of the financial aid you could receive if you attend Oxy.
