Graduate Residential Payment Policy

  • OCC Payment Options

    Registering for and attending college creates a financial obligation, and that obligation necessitates a plan for fulfilling payment. Upon a student’s registration and the completion of their financial aid file, preliminary charges and preliminary aid can be accessed on the OCC student portal (my.occ.edu).

    OCC students have two payment options:

    1. Pay in full: Complete payment of graduate studies tuition and fees (less anticipated aid).
      • Fall: August 15
      • Spring: January 15
      • Summer: May 15
    2. Enroll in the Payment Plan: OCC offers the opportunity to spread your bill over several interest-free monthly payments. The only cost for this service is an administrative fee of $30 to be assessed each semester this payment option is used. The enrollment form is available on the OCC student portal.

      For assistance, contact OCC Student Financial Services at 417.626.1216.
