Emergency Loans

In the spirit of Associated Students of Orange Coast College motto, "Students Helping Students", they established an Emergency Loan program to assist students in need.

Any student who has paid the College Service Charge (CSC) can request a 30-day interest-free Emergency Loan up to $200.00 by completing the ASOCC Emergency Loan Application.

If you should have any questions, please contact the Student Life & Leadership Department at (714) 432-5730 or studentlife@occ.cccd.edu.
