Net Price Calculator
The net price calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get the estimate of what it may cost to attend OCC each year. It is important for you to understand that the information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate. Many factors come into play when we award financial aid to students including, but not limited to: deadlines, levels of funding, grade levels, and academics. It is also important to note that the net price calculator does not incorporate Federal Stafford Loans into its financial aid calculations. Students who file a FAFSA are eligible for low interest, deferred loans through the Federal Direct Lending Program. The loan amounts students are offered vary based on a student's dependency status and grade level in school.
