Welcome to Financial Aid

​Welcome to the Financial Aid Office web site. The Financial Aid Office staff is here to assist you with questions regarding the student financial aid process. 




The Financial Aid Office at Orange Coast College has now received 2017-2018 FAFSA applications.  Please log into your MyOCC account and/or read the email sent out to all students for further instructions.     


Important Notice:


Loans Requests  for the 2017-2018 year are NOW available through your MyOCC portal. 

Return of Title IV Policy

Federal aid recipients who withdraw or are dropped from all classes by the instructor are subject to new regulations regarding the Return of Title IV funds.  Students who withdraw or are dropped from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of the enrollment period are subject to these rules.  Based on the date of the complete withdrawal or drop, the Financial Aid Office will determine the amount, if any, of "unearned" federal financial aid received by the student. 


Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver

The Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver waives your enrollment fees.  It will not pay for the following things such as:

  • Health fee
  • Parking permit
  • College Service fee
  • Materials fee


Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

Student information can only be released to the student unless an Information Release Authorization form is on file documenting additional individuals.
