*Status Change from Full-Time to Part-Time
The College refund policy for students dropping from full-time status to part-time status is effective only for the first five weeks of the semester. Students who register at the beginning of the term as full-time and elect to drop to part-time status will be billed on a per unit basis (eleven or fewer units). After the 26th day of classes, no adjustment will be made and the student will be billed at the regular full-time rate.
To be considered part-time, a student must petition to the Registrar’s office and be approved. Attending eleven or fewer units without an approved petition from the Registrar does not constitute part-time status and the student will be subject to full-time tuition and fees. Any status change that results in a credit, partial or otherwise, of tuition, room, board and fee charges may affect your financial aid award. Such a change could result in a balance on your student account that would be due and payable.
Actual Costs vs. Cost of Attendance
These actual costs will differ from the Cost of Attendance on which financial aid eligibility is based. Federal regulations dictate which costs and the amount that we are able to use when determining financial aid eligibility. More information about the Cost of Attendance used to determine financial aid can be found at https://www.oxy.edu/admission-aid/costs-financial-aid.
Miscellaneous fees may appear on your account, including, but not limited to: Library, Campus Dining fees, Emmons Student Wellness Center and other various departmental charges. If you have questions regarding these charges, you must contact the issuing department directly. Student Business Services cannot reverse departmental charges without authorization from the issuing department.
The student health insurance provider is Aetna Student Health. Additional information can be found at https://www.oxy.edu/student-life/resources-support/emmons-wellness-center. If you have specific questions regarding the coverage or need assistance with filing your insurance claims, please contact Krista Place at (323) 259-2836.
Student Business Services and the Oxy Bookstore offers vouchers to all students that can be used to purchase books and class-related materials at the bookstore. Whatever you buy with the voucher – a maximum of $600 for both Fall & Spring semesters – will be billed to your student account. This allows you to spread out payments for textbooks and other supplies. Vouchers are valid 2 weeks before classes begin. More information on this program will be e-mailed at the beginning of each semester.
