Payments & Donations

Your OSCA Bill

Your OSCA cost is separate from any charges you may receive from Oberlin College; members of OSCA are billed directly by OSCA each semester (typically in August and January for Fall and Spring Semesters respectively). Payment of your OSCA bill is due 30 days after you have been invoiced. OSCA bills will be snail mailed to your permanent address on file (i.e. the address of the person who will pay your OSCA bill) and emailed to your oberlin.edu address additionally.

OSCAns who have overdue accounts will be assessed a compounding 1% finance charge each month the account is overdue. (“Overdue” is defined as an account which is not paid-in-full by its due date, and which has not been put on an official payment plan by the Financial Manager or the OSCA Treasurer.) 

Payment Plans Available

Members who wish to pay their OSCA bills in installments should contact the Financial Manager, and pick up a form in the OSCA Financial Office.
