For Parents

Getting into college can seem overwhelming—especially for parents. We're here to reassure you.

You've been a huge part of your child's journey and supportive in countless ways. While it's ultimately up to your child to take ownership of the college process, getting into and affording college may bring up questions for the whole family.

Learn more about our application process and financial aid to begin answering those questions. You can also see what programs and resources are available to the parents and family members of current Oxy students.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out—admission and financial aid officers are always happy to chat with parents and families. Want to connect with the parent of a current Oxy student? Check out the Ask an Oxy Parent page.
