OSHIP Financial Assistance
An OSHIP Grant may be available to help pay for your Oxy health insurance cost.
All enrolled students must 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 is $1,726. The insurance 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.
If you are denied a waiver from this requirement or you are not currently insured you may apply for an OSHIP Grant to help cover the cost of your Oxy health insurance.
Grant applications for 2015-2016 will be available once open enrollment begins. Stay tuned for more information.
