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 or 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 the 2016-2017 academic year, the premium of this insurance is $2,150. If you are currently covered by health insurance, you are encouraged to waive out of the Oxy Health Insurance Plan by going to https://studentinsurance.wellsfargo.com/OCCC/oxy. 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.
While limited grants are available through the Financial Aid Office, they are only awarded to students who have exhausted all other cost-effective options and meet guidelines established by the Financial Aid Office.
