Late Payment Fee
A late payment fee of $25 is assessed on each deferred tuition payment not made by the due dates. This fee is also assessed on contracts from previous terms that are past due.
Determination of Residency
To qualify as a local or state resident, the student must have resided in Oregon for the past 90 days. Border state (California, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington) students pay in-state tuition.
Adding or Dropping a Class
Students wishing to change their schedule by adding or dropping classes, in accordance with the Academic Calendar, need to do so via their myOCCC accounts.
The deferred tuition program permits an opportunity to extend tuition and fee payments. Education expenses are payable on scheduled due dates. If you withdraw after the refund period, you remain responsible for the balance of your deferred payments.
Individuals failing to meet the scheduled payment due date will forfeit future participation in the deferred tuition program. The first missed payment deadline will result in a one-term suspension, a second missed the deadline will result in a permanent suspension of eligibility in the deferred tuition program. Deferred tuition payments can be made at any college center or mailed to OCCC, Attn: Business Office, 400 SE College Way, Newport, OR 97366. All payments must be received by the contracted due date.
To help students better navigate Financial Aid and other payment questions, OCCC created the ‘Pay Your Way to Success’ policy. Pay in full or make college-approved payment arrangements by the Thursday prior to the start of the term to avoid being automatically dropped from your classes. Your registration is secure if you have a financial aid award letter, have set up a college-approved payment plan, have arranged with Accounts Receivable for a third party payment, or have a scholarship that will cover your student account balance for the term.
For more information, please watch a brief video about Pave Your Way to Success.
By registering for a class at Oregon Coast Community College, you have incurred a legal obligation to pay all tuition, fees, and any other charges relating to your enrollment, even if your charges are being paid by another party. Unless you officially drop your courses within the full refund period each term, you are obligated to meet the payment deadline found on the academic calendar. If you have a balance due, your account may be turned over to the Oregon Department of Revenue for collections. Additional late charges and fees will result.
Late Payment Fee
Payments may be made by any of the following methods:
